Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
From how to filter water laced with gravel, sand and charcoal to Einstein's theory of relativity, young scientists will find all they need to know in The Way Science Works: Discover the Secrets of Science with Exciting, Accessible Experiments by Robin Kerrod and Sharon Ann Holgate. Eight well-organized sections brim with information, color photographs and fun experiments like how to make a polymer slime and an electromagnet out of a screwdriver, battery and copper wire; easy-to-read icons designate whether kids can do them alone or with an adult. A few should only be demonstrated in a lab. Brief sidebars introduce important scientists and explain how their work shaped history. (Apr.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
This wonderful book is complete with exquisite full-color illustrations and photographs of the fascinating world of scientific exploration. Young and old readers alike will delight in the jam-packed and detailed information about the history, principles, and procedures behind scientific experiments, and discoveries. The experiments within the book will particularly intrigue science teachers, as they provide the step-by-step directions needed to experience science in action. The book primarily discusses the processes that occur in the real world: experiments involving such physical properties as matter, atoms, elements, forces, energy, heat, sound, light, color, electricity, and magnetism. This terrific resource explains key theories in clear and accessible language, and highlights even the smallest of detail with clear and vivid images. From creating your own polymer slime to investigating rocket power, budding and accomplished scientists will relish the chance to experience vicariously how science really works. This is a perfect complement to a science curriculum at school, or making science fair projects at home. 2002, Dorling Kindersley Publishing, 160 pp.,
