In Amazing Kitchen Chemistry Projects You Can Build Yourself, kids ages 9 and up will experiment with kitchen materials to discover the basic concepts of chemistry. Readers will learn about atoms, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, polymers, the periodic table, the important history of science, and much more. Along the way, they'll make goop, cause chemical reactions, and create delicious treats, and all of it will illustrate important chemistry concepts. Amazing Kitchen Chemistry Projects is a fun and exciting way for young readers to learn about chemistry, a subject that could otherwise seem dull, and become scientists while they're at it.

Kids will learn how to shoot candy and soda 10 feet up in the air or create a crystal collage with the key chemistry concepts and exciting yet educational projects in this handbook. With more than two dozen fascinating projects illustrating major chemistry themes—including atoms and molecules; the characteristics of solids, liquids, and gases; chemical reactions; acids and bases; and the properties of water—children learn the theory behind each project and then see the principles in action. A combination of wacky experiments, yummy cooking projects, and unusual creations, the activities can all be completed using common household materials and include walking on goop,” making taffy, viewing the world from inside a giant bubble, and many more sure to keep kids investigating how the world works.
