This amazing book from the famous Naked Scientists offers a fun way to introduce science to kids, with 50 simple experiments that produce spectacular results. Want to know how to create fireworks from a bag of chips? Turn rice into quicksand? Generate a cloud in a soda bottle? How about build a toaster-powered hot air balloon, or work out the speed of light using margarine and a microwave? The results will amuse, astound, and educate in equal measure, whether you're 8 or 80. Most of these activities can be performed with commonplace materials that are probably lying around the house. Concise scientific explanations are included on how and why the experiments actually work. Each activity is straightforward and manageable, yet impressive enough to get anyone interested in science. So whether it's racing jelly jars, making a bowl invisible, or instantly freezing soda before your eyes--with the Naked Scientists' help, you'll never have a dull rainy day again!
