Comments about this product:

The task is overwhelming and the video captures the TRUE nature of attempting something never tried before. From the open scene to the last photo of a new species and life, the video takes you on the journey from concept to completion one step at a time. The video, explains in details, how the creation of a new life was accomplished over several years of hard work.
I believe a few additional graphics and a final graphic summary would cement this video together as an award winning, ground breaking documentary. I have already presented this video to middle school students in grades 6 and 7. They found the material interesting and somewhat easy to follow. The students had a ton of questions at the end of the video. I suggest a teacher guide be developed, based on the film in order assist teachers in answering questions. I suggest that teachers who watch and create labs and lessons share them on line to assist students in following the complex steps taken to create the new life form.
