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!
