From thinking of a unique science fair experiment to putting fabulous finishing touches on the display, this cool collection of 50 smart and illustrated projects gives budding scientists everything they need to put together a winnerand have fun doing it, too. Kids have seen all the tricks, and they’re tired of science fair books that show them (yawn) how to make the “been there, done that” volcano or a boring model of the solar system. Here are experiments they really want to do, on subjects such as slime, magic sand, video games, mummies, dog germs, horoscopes, bicycles, and more. The whole science fair experience is broken down into small, manageable steps, so youngsters won’t feel overwhelmed. All safety precautions are taken, with notes on parental supervision, when necessary.
