Includes the following seven segments:

Super Shape (Structures) - In this STEM episode Eric builds a big house of cards and a super strong bridge using triangles made of paper straws! It’s not magic, it’s science! Educational Gist: Triangles are a very strong shape and are often used for building strong structures.

Superchutes! (structures) - 3, 2, 1… Jump! In this STEM episode Eric makes a number of parachutes in his quest to find the right sized one that will prevent his egg from smashing on the ground! It’s not magic, it’s science. Educational Gist: To find solutions we have to study the problem, come up with ideas, and build prototypes to test those ideas.

Kite Shenanigans (structures) - Eric’s old kite is broken! In this STEM episode Eric learns how to build an excellent kite! It’s notmagic, it’s science! Educational Gist: How to build a great kite using lightweight materials and symmetry.

Friction and Reality (friction/movement) - Rub… rub… rub… Can you feel the heat? Yes? It’s friction! In this STEM episode Eric learns howfriction creates heat and can slow down moving objects. It’s not magic, it’s science! Educational Gist: Friction is a force that prevents objects from sliding against each other. Therougher the two surfaces, the greater the friction.

Bernoulli and Company (flight) - Eric learns that Bernoulli’s Principle can explain how planes fly! It’s not magic, it’s science…it’s STEM! Educational Gist: As air moves around an object, it creates different pressures on that object—fastmoving air equals low air pressure and slow moving air equals high air pressure.

Painting at the Bernoulli (flight) - In this STEM episode Eric makes his own airbrush and learns more about the Bernoulli Principle. It’snot magic, it’s science! Educational Gist: Air that moves quickly across one end of a straw causes a pressure drop that willsuck liquid up through the other end!

Wind Beneath Your Wings (flight/symmetry) - Are you ready for takeoff? Eric learns how to make the perfect paper airplane! Let’s go! It’s not magic,it’s science… it’s STEM! Educational Gist: How symmetry and wing design affect an airplane in flight. An airplane changes direction when moving air hits the different surfaces on the airplane’s wings.
