Educated or Scarred for Life? Yes!

I love videos like the one embedded below, as I have been fascinated by dinosaurs all of my life. In some ways, I wish things like this had existed when I was a child. (Although, since I was terrified of the Philly Phanatic, this might have caused me to blow a gasket.) But one site asks the question are such animatronic and puppeteering scare-fests really educational? Or are we just fooling ourselves that fun and learning can co-exist in such environments?

Fun video. I think it has some level of educational value, but even if all it does is help give the kids a positive attitude toward school, that can help the learning environment which is positive.
