    Do this and watch their eyes glaze over. Nobody at this age wants to hear the same lecture Mom and Dad give.

    What kind of neat to watch processes do you have?

    You want to show them the things that look like magic.
    The stuff where the next day they tell their friends "I saw this".
    Just putting a dead bee under the high power microscope or yanking a hair from your head and showing how you can run "inside a gnat's ass" can be a interest point.
    Think entertainment, think the things they have not seen done in front of them.
