Using everyday and inexpensive household stuff, like potatoes and plastic bottles, a bar of soap, nails, magnets, cornstarch, and liquid, future scientists can do experiments like “floating water,” a “screaming balloon,” a “bubbling lava bottle,” and “giant smoke rings.”

...let me just say that this book and it’s experiments ROCK. We love it and think the photographs look good enough to eat! Especially the naked eggs.

...“Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes,” is among the best I’ve seen. If you are looking for a way to get your kids excited about science, look no further.

This book is chock full of excellent pictures and simple, fun to read instructions which explain nearly 30 experiments...

Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes is Steve Spangler’s newest book and it is without doubt a book jam-packed with unforgettable experiments that makes science a whole lot of fun for the whole family! Life Science, Biology, and Physics are the 3 science courses being studied in our home this year, and when any one of my children begin gathering their materials for a science lab, I spy my other two children slowly and silently slinking into the kitchen to watch and become engaged...
