Keeping Science Real in a Digital World

Gaming, apps, online videos and tutorials are all great ways to get kids interested in science. But the digital world can't teach a child how a bowling ball feels in their hands or the cool temperature of an ice cube. Doing real science means learning how the real world looks, feels, and sounds. Join Dr. Keller as she shows you how to use digital media to augment your child's education without replacing the real world of science.
