Have you ever seen a professional baseball player hit a homerun with a bat made of glass or a hockey player take a slapshot with a stick made of paper? In this fun, educational and entertaining video, students are invited into a science lab where they meet the zany Professor Peter Plankton and his adorable partner, Professor Tess Tube. Professor Plankton takes us on a whirlwind tour around the world as he ends up in the Brazilian rainforest dressed for winter, and in the snowy north dressed for the beach. Thankfully, Professor Tube is on hand to get him back to the lab where they demonstrate the "science of materials and objects". Students will join in the romp as they learn that objects are all around us, and that all objects are made of materials such as plastic, wood, glass, and steel. The two professors demonstrate the various properties of a material and an object and students are introduced to vocabulary such as shiny, hard, smooth, and flexible. Short, fun experiments demonstrate key concepts. Throughout the program, students are encouraged to be environmentally responsible as the 3 R's (Reducing, Reusing and Recycling) are introduced.
