3 Stars Out Of 5
Only if you can't do simple experiments yourself
August 30, 2012
"Stanley the Scientist" is the character that takes the student through the experiments derived from the segments from the Switched on Schoolhouse (also Alpha Omega Publications) curriculum. Stanley's giant, false teeth and slow pace of speech distracted our children from the material enough to need to repeat segments a few times just to be sure that they caught what they were supposed to catch. On SOS the segments are in a small window screen making it hard to see. A good reason for purchasing the additional DVD is that you may not be able to do the experiments with your children. For 16 experiments this isn't the best value.
