The more than 1,000 videos offer spectacular footage from NASA, CBS, the BBC, and other sources, and all are original and purpose-made.

Created with teachers to ensure a good fit with science curriculums, Twig videos are rigorously researched by academics, catalogued by curriculum subject (biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science), and an excellent teacher resource for engaging students of all abilities at grade 5 and above. The videos are effective when delivered on a whiteboard or presentation station, or even reviewed on individual laptops or other personal computers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very interesting to the students. Has a wide range of topics, but would like a few more about speed. Down size is the cost. Our district has no money, so it's been difficult to purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my job as a teacher better! I can dive deeper into concepts with TWIG. I love it, as do the kids. It takes key scientific concepts and does a terrific job of explaining it. Students can review, see/hear vocabulary in action, and visualize. Advanced students can quickly gain knowledge and go further. I can use the videos in class or assign them for home viewing. I love that I can always trust the video, unlike YouTube or other sites with inappropriate advertising.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes teaching and learning exciting I first learned about Twig films when I received a direct mail ad at school. I needed video resources, but didn't have the time to search out and preview tons of films before in-class use. I tried the 30-day trial and it was hands-down one of the best things I ever did! My students love Twig films because the clips and graphics are vibrant, exciting and captivating. I love them because with the extensive library, I'm covered-no matter the topic. The films are easy to search and at 3 minutes or less, I can quickly preview the films and be ready to introduce them to my students. A great plus-the quizzes make for a quick assessment to gauge students' progress during a lesson cycle. A Twig subscription is easy and exciting to use, delivers on its promise and is an excellent value-worth every penny and then some! Try them-you'll be blown away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Videos After using Twig for a trial period, I realized it was a must-have. I sadly watched my 30 days dwindle, and knew I could never go back - I subsequently purchased a subscription. Our school uses a variety of videos to demonstrate concepts to students. However, searching for age-appropriate, brief, content filled videos is very daunting and time-consuming. We still use several different video/visual sources, however, Twig provides a variety of videos across scientific disciplines and greatly ameliorates the need to look elsewhere. I currently use the videos for 2nd-6th graders. Students love to see the videos as a way to introduce a concept, visualize information, or wrap-up an investigation. I use twig on a daily basis. The vocabulary, footage, and concepts are all high-quality. Twig (Science) is a welcome addition to any classroom that engages or explores with scientific concepts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent and useful videos I really enjoy using the Twig Science videos with my students. They cover many topics. The videos are short and entertaining. They keep my students' attention and much information is provided in the short two or three minute long videos. They are clear, loud and informational. There are materials to use with them that add to their usefulness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, Easy and Informative! I received a trial subscription from a conference I attended and I've already included a subscription into my budget for next year. The videos are easy to find and very informative. My students really like them and especially enjoy the British accents!
