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.”

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...
