    Today’s webinar with Mr. Wizard was fantastic. My kids were fascinated by the experiments and Mr. Wizard truly made them think like scientists to predict when they had to predict what would happen with the pencil and the bag full of water. I truly appreciate the opportunity to interact like this. I encourage everyone to try an interactive webinar with their students if Discovery offers one again.
