With these nearly 100 experiments, kids can create a whole new world of scientific magic and mystery. By carefully following the instructions they'll succeed in producing a batch of invisible ink, turning a straw into a trombone, squeezing an egg into a small bottle, launching a rocket with a lemon, and lots more. From cooking up a "liquid sandwich" to blowing a superbubble, every idea is wonderfully clever.
Simon Basher is back with another zany primer to science Following his 3 successful titles on the basics of chemistry, physics, and biology, BASHER SCIENCE: ROCKS AND MINERALS is an in-depth look at the ground beneath our feet. Like his other titles, Basher presents these topics through charming and adorable illustrations and pairs them with basic information told from a first person perspective. He develops a community of characters based on the things that form the foundations of our planet: rocks, gems, crystals, fossils and more. And what's more, he makes it understandable, interesting, and cute. It's not what you expect out of a science primer.
