Overview

Vibrantly colorful pictures plus 150 creative crafts and entertaining experiments equal science fun for kids. From a hot air balloon to a primitive kiln, here's the hands-on way for children to learn all about the world around them. Every project will encourage the budding scientist and inventor, and sidebars throughout answer the important questions. Youngsters can construct an observation station to study close-to-home wildlife; create a "fossil" that looks a million years old; and chart where things are by making and using maps of all kinds. They can even assemble a cross staff to measure the altitude of stars just as the early explorers did. It's perfect for science fairs, school projects, or just for the joy of discovery.
