    "Designed as an instructional tool to show the steps that must be followed when conducting a scientific experiment, this video meets its objective in a lively, engaging manner. It encourages students to question mysteries observed in one's own life and to set up experimentation using the scientific method. A humorous element is inserted with age-appropriate animation of a mad scientist appearing at strategic places, but for the most part the video is live-action using teenage subjects. The gender and racial diversity is excellent, the organization is logical, and the subject of the experiment - discovering whether loud music played while studying decreases test scores - definitely will interest the targeted audience. Subject matter includes the steps of the scientific method, what is unethical, the difference between the independent and dependent variables, random selection, avoiding bias, and graphing to evaluate results. There is ample explanation of key terms such as experiment, theory, and cause and effect relationships. Useful for group or individual viewing, the video is appropriate for school libraries and for science teachers who want to interest students in preparing original experiments for school science fairs."
