Product Description

This Popular Mechanics television series teaches kids about the science and technology that make the world a fun and interesting place. In these four episodes, hosts Jay, Elisha, Tyler, and Vanessa jump into creepy crawly sewers and piles of garbage in search of leeches, roaches, worms, and more!

Amazon.com

Slither & Slime investigates the question all kids want to know, and makes it look like a grand adventure: Where does a toilet flush go exactly? Junior hosts Jay and Elisha conspire to find out, with the aid of New York City sewer personnel, by dropping green dye and a ping-pong ball down an ordinary toilet and watching these items progress through sewage and processing systems that ultimately release cleansed (if undrinkable) water back into natural destinations. But Slither & Slime is also about what else is below our feet: a glimpse at the giant water tunnel under construction 66 stories beneath New York (due for operation in 2025), the look of subway maintenance late at night, and how tunnel-boring machines ("moles") dug their way under the English Channel to create the British-French "Chunnel." Spectacular footage and wry humor make this a great way to see below the surface of things. --Tom Keogh

I've purchased several of these DVDs for my five year old and he adores them. It's a shame there aren't more shows like this still on the air. It's informative, intelligent television viewing. He learns something while he watches it, and thoroughly enjoys it. My three year old daughter isn't as captivated by it as my son, but she still gleans information off it as he does.

Popular Mechanics for Kids - Slither & Slime and Other Yucky Things

My 5 year old boy loves these programs. The first two were so enjoyed I bought the rest of the series.
This was a series on tv at one time, apparently. I hope they package the rest of the programs because the show was fab.
Each dvd has 4 episodes that are somewhat related. The 2 kid hosts explore different aspects of each subject.
Some are surprising but all are interesting, informative and professionally made.
In earlier reviews of this series I forgot to mention that grown ups find these programs interesting as well.
My husband and I love them as well.
Don't let the worms on the cover fool you this has other subjects as well. I guess the connection is they are all kind of yucky or underground.
