Why Use Science Videos
Multimedia brings technology into the classroom and engages students, especially visual and auditory learners, with science content that might not otherwise be accessible.
Science A-Z's science videos also provide dynamic illustrations of complex processes that text and static diagrams cannot.
How to Use Science Videos
