Children's LiteratureWritten by a retired high school teacher of physics, chemistry, and physical science, this book has many great ideas for the middle school or high school student for science fair projects. Some experiments may require additional help from a parent, but many can be done by the student himself. Experiments include measuring air temperature and air pressure; making a model of the moon, earth, and sun; fitting continents on tectonic plates; and mapping their own backyard. Several projects include ideas for additional projects so the student can design his own original project. Students can use the sun, the moon, soil, sand, water, coins, straws, beach balls, Frisbees, thermometers, and light bulbs in many of their projects. Some may require hard-to-find equipment, but the author usually gives substitute suggestions. This is one of three books containing science projects. It includes a resource list of science supply companies, additional reading materials, and Internet addresses. Students will enjoy science as well as understand it by using this book. 2005, Enslow Publishers, Ages 12 to 18.
