Travel to the wonders of northwestern Wyoming and explore America’s first national park. Here Noah shows you the strong evidence of the catastrophe that created this massive marvel… Quickly laid down by the waters of the Flood, the petrified forests and canyons did not take millions of years to form, but reflect the historical timeline found in the Bible.
In this 30-minute segment, you and your student will learn how:
- The Geologic Column is best explained by the Global Flood
- Super volcanoes were used to shape the Earth after the Flood.
- The petrified forests in Yellowstone were formed in just a few years.
This series is produced by Kyle Justice, whose work has appeared on such networks as National Geographic, ESPN, and the Outdoor Channel, along with his creative homeschool-family team. Teen host Noah Justice serves as your guide to truth on the ground at national parks and other geologic locations, bringing you an educational and entertaining adventure!

An excellent learning experience Review by Danika Cooley
What did you think of this book?
Our family loves (loves, loves) exploring God’s beautiful creation and we’ve been to many of these sites in the western United States, which makes learning about the science behind the amazing nature all the more special for us.
I’ve reviewed each of the ten Awesome Science DVDs independently with purchase links below each one.
About the Videos
I love the emphasis of this series on viewing scientific data through the lens of biblical history, and upon the gospel message in each video. Noah Justice discusses the scientific data for each area, explaining how secular scientists interpret the evidence. He then explains the way Creation scientists interpret data through the lens of biblical history before comparing the evidence for each viewpoint. Noah Justice also talks about how the catastrophic, global Flood of Noah explains the geology and other science (including chemistry and microbiology) of each area. At the end of each video, he explains that God once judged the earth through the global flood. Jesus will return, and God will judge the earth again, this time by fire (2 Peter). He explains the gospel and the need to repent and follow Christ.
Noah Justice is ages 14-17 in the ten videos so far (twelve videos by the time you read this!), and he does a wonderful job of presenting some tough scientific concepts in the course of just 30 minutes for each video. The first six videos have a coordinating study guide with vocabulary, worksheets, and additional written information to go with the video. With the depth of information involved, I’d suggest a copy for each student! This series–with the study guides–is an excellent choice for science over the course of a year for grades 4-9 or so.
The Awesome Science series is produced by Noah’s father, Kyle Justice, whose work has appeared on such networks as National Geographic, ESPN, and the Outdoor Channel, along with his creative homeschool-family team.
Explore Yellowstone (Episode 2)
Did you know the first (Western) visitors to Yellowstone described it as the entrance to Hell? I can understand how sections of the park could give that impression. I mean, there’s steaming, bubbling paint pots that smell just strongly of sulfur. Our family loves Yellowstone. What an amazing place.
In this video, Noah Justice teaches students about sedimentary rocks, fossils, and discusses the natural outcome of a massive flood. He shows how we see evidence of a global flood in the sedimentary rock at Yellowstone. God designed our world to be self-cleaning. Dead animals on land and in the sea are quickly consumed by scavengers. For fossils to be created, there needs to be a sudden burial. A flood explains the fossils we see.
Yellowstone is a massive super-volcano. Noah Justice explains the geology, chemistry, and microbiology behind the geysers in the park before moving on to Hayden Valley. He discusses the former lake bed, the river, the canyon, and the glacial retreat that occurred. Noah Justice explains how the canyon could have been formed in just a day rather than over millions of years. He also talks about the different kinds of canyons and how they occur. We also learn about the microbiology of the fantastic paint pots in Yellowstone.
Noah Justice also explains the science behind volcanos and Old Faithful. We get to take a look at the limestone layers in the north part of the park too. Those limestone terraces are incredible. He also talks about the petrified forests of the park. I haven’t seen the petrified trees planted there (with compelling evidence that the trees were transplanted during a flood), and found this section especially interesting. He then explains the wood at the bottom of the lake and the process of petrification.
Throughout the video, we learn about science, history, the Bible, and Creation science versus secular science. Noah Justice gives a compelling alternative theory for the science behind the wonders at Yellowstone National Park, using the history of the Bible as a basis for truth.
I want to thank Master Books for providing me with the Awesome Science with Noah Justice DVD set in return for my honest opinion.

Exploring Yellowstone Review by Heather
What did you think of this book?
In the second video of the Awesome Science series, Noah takes us to Wyoming to visit America's first national park, Yellowstone. Yellowstone is one of the national parks that is still on our "to visit" list.
In Exploring Yellowstone with Noah Justice, Noah continues with his educational yet entertaining presentation style as he compares the two different views of the Yellowstone. The video itself is a good quality production. Noah's Dad, Kyle Justice, who produced the video has had his work featured on networks such as National Geographic and the Outdoor Channel. As a homeschool family, the Justices have gotten the whole family involved in the production of this series.
Most science videos have adults teaching the students, so it's fun to see a quality nature/science video presented by a kid to kids. Even though the videos have been done in a kid-friendly format, people of all ages will enjoy the videos.
In this 30-minute video, Noah talks about how:
*the evidence points toward the Geologic Column being created by the Global Flood
*super volcanoes shaped the earth after the Global Flood
*the evidence points toward the petrified forests in Yellowstone being formed in a few years, not millions of years.
Viewers are encouraged to continually check scripture to make sure that the information being presented is Biblical which is something that I really appreciated.
Each video has an available study guide which includes review exercises and a discussion guide for the various segments within the video. The study guides help viewers get the most out of the videos. The suggested bonus activities will allow viewers to dig deeper into the topics being presented.
When watching the video, you'll want to make sure you check out the bloopers as they are rather amusing. My daughter says it proves that Noah is just a regular kid.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the dvd and study guide to help facilitate the writing of a frank and honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. (Posted on 10/20/2015)
