Physics Projects for Young Scientists

Overview

The idea of doing a "physics" project might scare you, but it shouldn't. After all, you have been learning about physics since you were a toddler. Did you ever build a tower of blocks and then knock it down? You were learning about gravity. Did you ever ride a bike with "no hands?" You were taking advantage of a scientific principle called precession. Physics also explains why balls bounce, how musical instruments work, and why the lamp in your bedroom shines brightly when you flip a switch on your wall. This ...

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
We all start out as scientists. We observe, test, and experiment as we are growing up. Somewhere along the line, we get the notion that science is supposed to be difficult and decide that only brainy people can do science experiments. Nevertheless many of us continue to question the why and how of our everyday world. Physics is a science that provides the tools to explain everyday phenomena. With this book, Adams and Goodwin offer a perfect outlet for young people's inquiring minds. The experiments are explained thoroughly, and the materials used are readily available. The authors also take the concepts learned from the experiments and apply them to the real world. Many experiments easily could be expanded to science fair projects. Adams and Goodwin further students' knowledge by giving helpful hints on using the Internet as a resource and suggestions on how to organize the data in computer programs, such as in a spreadsheet. As we begin the new millennium, it is important for librarians to take advantage of the science resources that will further our students' ability to understand and relate to our world and universe. Physics Projects for Young Scientists is just such a resource. Glossary. Index. Appendix. Biblio.
