Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Remy Dou
With over eleven amazing activities to impress friends and family, readers will enjoy learning about physics more than they thought possible. From making slime dance to getting a Ping-Pong ball to float in midair, Slade has included engaging projects to wake up the physicist in her readers. The zany looking layouts and photographs of diverse young women demonstrating the activities will appeal to girls, but even boys should find themselves wanting to try these out (I did!). Steps are simple and concepts are clear. Parents and teachers will be happy to know that required materials are inexpensive and easily accessible—most can be found in a typical kitchen. Teachers could use these projects to introduce their students to various concepts of physical science. The "Read More" section will allow them to supplement lessons with leading questions that motivate students to pursue further investigation. A glossary and index are included. Readers of this book may also be interested in others in the "Girls Science Club" series, published by Capstone Press. Reviewer: Remy Dou
