This is a great resource, and a valid premise. I think that implementing more hands on is crucial at every stage of education.

It is a very nice demonstration of a hands-on activity; students learn while they are enjoying the experience. This experience is very convenient for high school students. Concerning the way they present the information to us; It is a short video, easy to follow and with high quality.

As related to the classroom, this short video describes the effectiveness of project-based, hands-on learning. I think this is extremely necessary in today's science classrooms.
