Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What do a glass of milk, a sponge in the sink, and a refrigerator have in common? THEY'RE ALIVE with bacteria, mold, and kitchen chemistry possibilities. The kitchen is a perfect place for budding “mad scientists” to experiment. Kids 9 to 12 will have a blast using yeast to inflate balloons; making a fish mummy; growing a mold garden; and removing an eggshell with kitchen science experiments! Every topic features sidebars, illustrations, photographs, and extension activities.

Review:

"The 18 experiments in this collection, second in the Mad Science series, investigate micro-organisms thriving in kitchens. Using readily available materials (plus extras like powdered agar), readers can learn bacteria basics by taking samples from around the house and examining the growth in agar plates, inflating a balloon using yeast, and mummifying a fish with baking soda. Clear explanations of each experiment's end result make this a good choice for those just starting to tinker around with home chemistry sets. Ages 9 — 12. (Dec.)"
