Hello, Becky,
=20
Take a look at "Rough Science" (2002) on the Bullfrog Films web site. I
think you'll be happy to see the range of "real" chemistry experiments
performed by five world-class scientists. A series of ten half-hour
programs, "Rough Science" is available on video or DVD. If you wish, I
could send it out on preview for purchase evaluation.
=20
Two physicists, a botanist, a biologist, and a chemist are transported
to an isolated island where they must work together to solve a series of
challenges. Removed from their laboratories full of high-tech
instruments and extensive supplies, they must rely on their collective
knowledge, ingenuity and cooperation to accomplish their goals. They are
given three days to complete their tasks and, with the exception of a
rudimentary tool kit, must use only indigenous materials to do so.=20

The series shows the underlying principles that the scientists draw from
in order to solve the challenges.=20

I'm looking for a replacement for "The World of Chemistry" video series
from Annenberg. This title is closing in on 20 years old, and I know
that there have been a few advancements in chemistry, even for the high
school class. The Teaching Company has a class, but it is geared to
high school level, and is copyrighted 1994. Is there anything newer out
there? Thanks
