While the simplest science experiments can be the most impressive, Stupendous Science showcases some that will completely blow your mind.
We’ve all heard of the classic experiments such as making slime and the baking soda and vinegar volcanoes that you can do at home, but what about the electronic lemon, the vanishing rainbow or the solar oven?
Fortunately, you won’t need to rush out and spend a great deal of money on supplies for these experiments — the items that you will need are mostly household objects. However, you might want to get some safety goggles, as these will come in handy for the fountain of foam that will erupt when you’re making elephant’s toothpaste.
Not only have Beattie and Peet displayed some truly super science here; this book is stupendous in its design too. Each page is beautifully illustrated with fun and colourful designs, regular bursts of colour that perfectly complement this explosion of science.
Easy to follow, this instructional guide to science provides children (and adults if they wish) with an opportunity to learn about biology, chemistry and physics, all while having some fun. Now that’s what science should be about.
