Potato Chip Science
29 Incredible Experiments
Paperback      ISBN: 0761148256
Mmmmm, science! Irresistibly packaged inside a potato chip bag, Potato Chip Science is the wildly imaginative book and kit that introduces more than 30 experiments using potato chips, potatoes, and chip bags, tubes, and lids. Like Pop Bottle Science and the Hand in Hand with Nature series, it marries the fun of creative (and completely safe) activities with lessons drawn from the worlds of ecology and forensics, biology and bird-watching, acoustics, aeronautics, animation, and more. Make a chip can gobble like a turkey. Ready and fire the pocket-size potato propulsion pipe. Build a balloon-powered chip train. Hook up a working digital clock to the mysterious potato "battery." Create a shrunken potato head. Set off the bag blaster—and when the weather's right, go fly a chip bag kite. The book is filled with experiments, interesting modifications, and scientific principles. In addition, more than a dozen items used in the "snacktivities" are packaged in the bag—the digital clock, a 100 percent biodegradable child-friendly lab knife, caliper gauge, googly eyes, magnet, fingerprint brush, and more. Remember: When it comes to Potato Chip Science experiments, nobody can test just one!

The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science
Hardcover      ISBN: 076115020x
What could be more fun for kids than to have the kind of rip-roaring good time that harkens back to pre-video game, pre-computer days? Introducing 64 valuable science experiments that snap, crackle, pop, ooze, crash, boom, and stink! From Marshmallows on Steroids to Home-Made Lightning, the Sandwich Bag Bomb to Giant Air Cannon, The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science awakens kids' curiosity while demonstrating scientific principles like osmosis, air pressure, and Newton's Third Law of Motion. Kids will love performing these experiments, which use common household ingredients and equipment, in front of an audience or for themselves (though many require adult supervision). Entries are categorized into seven chapters according to scientific theme and are written in a simple-to-follow recipe format. each includes a detailed explanation of the scientific principle involved and a "Take Care!" section with special tips. The book's design and illustrations recall the pulp fiction look of science magazines from the days when space travel was still considered sci-fi, while the author's voice is wry and a bit conspiratorial. He assumes his readers are clever and never coddles them. Drop Mentos into a bottle of diet soda and stand back as a geyser erupts! Launch a rocket made from a film canister! Encase your little brother in a giant soap bubble! For young scientists—and the young at heart—this book is a blast. Literally.
