Tim Hedrick Science Show Repeats Friday
Updated 10:30 a.m. Weds 4/2: If you watched Tim Hedrick's "Science Spectacular" last night, you saw that the audio was out of sync with the video for the first segment. So Channel 12 will repeat the special at 7 p.m. Friday. It's a fun half-hour. Too bad we don't have more local specials on TV here...
Here's what I wrote before it aired Tuesday:
Tim Hedrick continues his quest to make science fun for kids of all ages with 12 experiments they can do at home on his "Doppler Tim’s Science Spectacular" today at 7 p.m. (Channel 12).
Hedrick, Channel 12's chief meteorologist since 1988, will be joined by musician Bootsy Collins, Police Chief Tom Streicher, chef Jean-Robert de Cavel and Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard.
"I have done about three dozen experiments during newscasts and have taken some of the best experiments that kids can do at home for this half-hour special. All of the footage is new. I present 12 experiments with a few variations and one project (a hovercraft) that kids can make at home," he says.
"The pace is fast and fun. It is geared for the family. My guests help with the infamous Coke/Mentos experiment in familiar Cincinnati surroundings. (i.e. the District 1 police station, the Zoo, Fountain Square, the sidewalk in front of Pigals.) I wrote the special. Jenny Overholts has helped produce, and magician/editor Mark did the editing," he says.
