Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"With more than 30 scientific experiments, ranging from more traditional science-fair projects — like making a rocket out of a sports drink bottle — to a recipe for an apple pie sans apples (sugar reacts with cream of tartar to produce a chemical that tastes like apples), this fun book has plenty of ideas to sample. Also offered are magnified images, including a sticky note (blown up, it looks like an 'alien landscape') and a silk worm that resembles a (scary) Jim Henson creation. In between experiments, Hammond explores the science behind the subjects: a section about sound emphasizes that 'sound is a form of ENERGY... it travels in waves.' The active approach to science and scrapbook-style design, with plenty of photos, notes and asides, should win over curious kids. Ages 7 — 10. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Readers can get their hands dirty with this wacky lab manual that walks them through more than 100 awesome experiments. Hammond's irreverent text and easy-to-follow instructions reveal the key principles of biology, chemistry, physics, mechanics, and more, getting readers truly engaged in scientific study. Full color.
