Overview

Do you remember those wonderful days in the school lab? Not those days when you had
to do those dreadful tests, or when your science teacher demonstrated yet another experiment that failed abysmally and the chemicals turned the wrong colour. Rather, those days when you learned about some amazing principle and felt stimulated to go home and try it out yourself. And when you did, do you recall that Eureka moment?

This book takes you on a voyage of scientific re-discovery. From the kitchen laboratory to the bathroom test site you will be able to do experiments galore, investigate the mystery of the pyramid, find things out about your body and make things fizz. If you want to reexperience those Eureka moments, then this book is for you

• That an ancient Greek inventor, Hero of Alexandria invented a steam machine 1,700 years before James Watt built his steam engine
• That you can make a crystal set radio from a toilet tube, copper wire, a pencil, a safety pin, a few drawing pins and paper clips, and an old razor blade

KEITH SOUTER is a part time doctor, medical writer and novelist. He has always had a passion for science and been an avid home experimenter. This all started in his early school days when he learned that his chemistry teacher had no intention of showing him how to make stink bombs.

He is now happily married with three grown-up children, all of whom somehow survived his impromptu experiments. Apart from his passion for science and medicine he is interested in history, sport and fiction. In his spare time he writes novels under his own name and a couple of pseudonyms. He is a member of the Crime Writers Association, the Society of Authors and International Thriller Writers.

He looks back with fondness at all those early forays into the laboratory and secretly
admits to being a frustrated science teacher - hence this book SCHOOLBOY SCIENCE
REMEMBERED.
