The Spangler Effect

The Spangler Effect is a new online show from frequent Ellen DeGeneres guest, Steve Spangler. On The Spangler Effect, Steve digs into a science experiment or demonstation by conducting a demonstration and explaining what caused the event. The clips are typically in the 15 minute range and include a scientific explanation of the observed phenomena.

As a teacher, I could imagine using a given video after students have had a chance to observe and explain a similar scientific event. The video could provide a new situation for applying a scientific idea or for checking an explanation. I have to admit that I wish the videos withheld the explanation a bit longer so that the observer could consider a personal explanation before hearing from the expert.
