It’s no secret, our family loves Steve Spangler. From his incredible science-experiement YouTube videos, his online store (filled with Science Projects, Experiments, Educational Toys & Science Toys), to even his blog, Steve Spangler is a household name around here.

It was just a few weeks ago that I grabbed the video camera and recorded Ella and I doing our first Steve Spangler-inspired experiment, the flying tea bags. Of course we wanted to give a shout-out to Mr. Spangler for encouraging us to experiment with everyday objects, so I posted a comment on his original video letting him know about ours.

Turns out, the “headless man” in the videos is actually named Bradley – and he contacted me initially thanking us for taking time to create our own video and for letting them know about it. It was in that same communication that Bradley asked me if we had a copy of Steve’s book, “Naked Eggs & Flying Potatoes” to which I sheepishly replied “no.” It was around this same time that we filmed our second science video, “Rainbow Milk” and Steve Spangler himself actually commented on our video and my blog post, too! Bradley contacted me a second time and asked for our address!

Today in the mail we had a package from Steve Spangler:

In case you can’t read it, it says: “Ella & Stevan, Your videos are awesome! Can’t wait to see your TV show. Keep ‘sciencing’. -Steve Spangler

We spent some time after supper looking through the book and making decisions on which experiments we are going to try first!

Thank you, Mr. Spangler for making our day!

Steve’s book is available in both paperback and as a Kindle eBook. Steve Spangler is also on Twitter, you should give him a follow!
