What is Rock-it Science?

Imagine a science teacher who's laid back and whimsical, who entertains kids with crazy fractured-fairytale stories, and then lets them experiment hands-on with all kinds of materials and equipment as well as fire, electricity, chemistry, and explosions.

That's Rock-it Science!
