Experiment Central: Understanding Scientific Principles Through Projectsby John Loret
Coming up with an interesting concept for a science project or an experiment be a challenge. That's why U.X.L created Experiment Central. In four volumes, your students will find examples of science projects and experiments they can replicate for science fairs and other purposes, as well as suggestions on ways they could design their own project that investigates a specific scientific topic.
To achieve the first purpose, step-by-step descriptions of projects are given. To achieve the second, hints and suggestions are included to enable a student to alter the original experiment or create a completely new one. Unlike other science experiment resources, Experiment Central also provides an accessible explanation of the theory and history behind the experiment.
Features include 180 black and white photos plus 300 technical drawings, sidebars on variables, safety tips and troubleshooting, a parents guide to their role in the experiment process and much more.
