    making physics fun

    Here is a charming box of 4 elementary electrical gadgets. With this book as your guide. Norman takes the child tinkerer (or an adult's inner child) into an easy recap of 19th century physics. The 20th century was the buildout of Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism. This book shows its prelude. The parts in the box are cheap and simple. But carefully chosen to be easy to assemble. The commonness of the parts adds to the author's overall message. Physics can be fun. A sense of wonder to be awoken and nurtured by the book's experiments. The book lacks equations. Instead, the author provides vividly drawn qualitative explanations that contain the essence of the physics. After all, most adults don't know the equations anyway. What the book can offer is a good and accurate qualitative physical understanding, that the child can carry forward.

    Great educational Box of fun

    I bought this for my 8 year old grandson for him and his Dad to do together. They both loved it and gave them some together time while having fun and learning at the same time.
