Science has never been so easy--or so much fun!

With The Everything Kids' Science Experiments Book, all you need to do is gather a few household items and you can recreate dozens of mind-blowing, kid-tested science experiments. High school science teacher Tom Robinson shows you how to expand your scientific horizons--from biology to chemistry to physics to outer space.

You'll discover answers to questions like:

  • Is it possible to blow up a balloon without actually blowing into it?
  • What is inside coins?
  • Can a magnet ever be "turned off"?
  • Do toilets always flush in the same direction?
  • Can a swimming pool be cleaned with just the breath of one person?
You won't want to wait for a rainy day or your school's science fair to test these cool experiments for yourself!
