Host, science educator, and leader in the field of professional educational training Steve Spangler encourages the discovery of scientific concepts through experiments viewers can do at home. With a fun, relaxed attitude, Steve will take viewers through step-by-step demonstrations of do-it-yourself experiments that amaze but which also relate back to solid principles of science. For instance, Steve Spangler became nationally-known with a video showing him dropping the candy Mentos into a bottle of diet soda. It erupts in a geyser of soda. On XPLORATION DIY Sci, Spangler demonstrates the experiment and also explains the science of why, on a molecular level, the soda reacts that way to the candy. XPLORATION DIY Sci is a half-hour weekly EI series produced with the intention of increasing and expanding our target audience interest in the field of STEM education. This series will help kids understand how they can discover the principles of science with items they can find in their very own home.
