Show Summary

Science for You is an educational series filmed at WPBS studios in New York with educator and host Melanie Grewan presenting science topics and experiments for second-grade students and their teachers. By combining lectures with science videos and hands-on experiments, Grewan introduces the world of science to kids in an entertaining way. The series opens with the subject, "Air Pressure: How Heavy Is Air?" Grewan shows kids how to measure air and explains how air pressure affects the weather. Children participating in the interactive experiments get to inflate their teacher and watch a soda can explode. Next in the season line up is, "Oceans: Why Is The Sea Salty?" Teachers can use this episode to discuss water temperature and to talk about the differences between saltwater and freshwater. Grewan then asks kids to follow her instructions as they try to balance a living eco-system. Other science subjects that appear throughout the season include "Magnetism: Why Does a Compass Point North?" and "Antarctica: 90 degrees South."
