This video is a part of the Way Cool Science series, a Thinkeroo Science video. Currently there are three videos in this series: “Stormchasers,” “Rockfinders” and “Biotrackers.” In “Stormchasers,” Max Orbit (Todd Alan Crane) takes kids on a scientific journey of the many weather conditions the world offers and how they can make their own barometer, anemometer and rain gauge. Kids will learn that the water cycle consists of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and dew point.
Kids that are interested in weather, like tornadoes, hurricanes, clouds and rain will like this well done educational video on weather and how tornadoes, hurricanes, and clouds are formed. There is a lot of cool information for young elementary age kids to absorb. Max is upbeat and quirky so that most kids will find him entertaining. The film footage of weather conditions is fantastic and will really hold the attention of elementary age kids. Some of the goals of the Way Cool Science video series are to make science more relevant in a kid’s everyday life. Motivate young, aspiring science-enthusiasts. Enhance elementary science lessons by bringing the outside world into the classroom. These videos are based on National Science Education Standards.
