What's the story?

CRASH! BANG! SPLAT! is a science show that encourages kids to get out and explore their physical world with the help of some very interesting, zany experiments. The kids perform backyard science experiments such as making kaleidoscopes, creating funnels, and playing with mirrors to learn about sound, gravity, light, and force.

Is it any good?

While classic science programs such as Mr. Wizard, and Bill Nye the Science Guy may have paved the road when it comes to turning kids on to science, Crash! Bang! Splat! is unique in that it was created by kids, for kids. The program's goal is to break science out of the laboratory and apply it to everyday life -- all while proving that science can be a lot of fun. Certainly, the multicultural cast of school children/aspiring scientists is having a ball. The show makes learning about science accessible and cool and helps young viewers realize that they, too, can do the experiments they see on television (with the help of Mom or Dad). Parents will like that their kids are learning something educational and enjoying themselves at the same time.

Science shows for kids are in no short supply these days, but most are based on the animal kingdom. Crash! Bang! Splat! gives kids the chance to see just how cool the natural sciences can be. Who knows? It may just inspire them to turn off the television altogether and go out to discover the wonders of science.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how scientific laws are part of everyday life. How does learning science make you more aware of the world around you? What did the show teach you about science that you didn't know before? Since the show's experiments are easy to recreate, families can use what they've learned to stage their own cool tests.
