This is how science should be taught in school

spengler Ever heard of Steve Spengler, the science teacher? I've seen him a couple of times in the Ellen show and I always enjoy the science experiments he performed on the show.

So I searched the web and found his site which is full of those cool science experiments. I mean this should be how science should be taught in school, with fun experiments that allows you to remember the theory behind it.  elecHeck I didn't know that humans can conduct electricity safely until Ellen touched a bulb charged with 50,000 volts to light a fluorescent bulb on her other hand.

The site has a huge list of cool experiments ranging from topics such as matter, chemistry, force and motion, electricity and a whole lot more. The experiments have a demo video, easy to use instructions and explanation in case you want to use it to teach students.

Man, I wish he was my teacher back in school. Seeing these experiments makes me want to be a science teacher, a cool one at that.
