BOOM: 50 Fantastic Science ExperimentsCHRIS SMITH & DAVE ANSELL Book Number: 85708 Product format: Paperback
Known as the Naked Scientists, here are fantastic experiments to try at home with your kids. Create fireworks from a bag of chips, turn rice into quicksand, generate a cloud in a pop bottle, or how about building a toaster-powered hot air balloon or working out the speed of light using margarine and a microwave? Easy and fun to do, you can race jam jars, make a bowl invisible, instantly freeze a soft drink before your eyes, learn the science of tidal waves, make a homemade mini fire extinguisher, an invisibility cloak and all about the chemistry of coppers. All the hows and whys explained in a lovely big clear modern layout with fact boxes, dozens of colourful diagrams and colour photos on every page. Most activities are performed with commonplace materials from around the home and with concise scientific explanations. 144pp in large softback, colour.
