Make a rocket from a plastic bottle, a hovercraft from a balloon, and a drag racer from cardboard! These amazing science projects use readily available items and have simple step-by-step instructions. Discover the science behind each experiment. They're quick to make and fun to show your friends and family. They bounce, they fly, they push, they whirl—they're forces and motion!
You know it's a fun science book when you read through each experiment and say "Ooh, I want to try that! And that!" And best of all, you actually understand from the explanation WHY each thing is doing the cool thing it does.
Let me say just one more time - I am not a sciencey person - but Lerner has come out with some great series lately that actually make me feel a little less clueless. Where were they when I was bombing 10th grade science?!
