Overview

TIME For Kids' successful Super Science Book just got bigger and better-with the all-new Big Book of Science Experiments. This full-color and expanded hardcover book presents 100 fresh and fascinating experiments for kids 8 to 12 to wrap their heads (and hands) around.

The inquiry-based experiments cover aspects of physical, life and earth science, and dovetail with the school science curriculum.

The intriguing experiments were created by the experts at Mad Science, the world's leading science enrichment provider. Probing questions to be explored include:

  • How does oil affect plants?
  • Which traits do you share with your family?
  • Can a battery turn a nail into a magnet?
Clear and colorful step-by-step directions accompany each experiment so children can easily follow the procedure. Additional background information and fun facts for each experiment lets kids know how it affects them and their world, explains the science behind what they've just done, and gives concrete extensions and ways to learn more about each subject.

A Science Fair chapter gives readers winning ways to present material to the public, including how to create visuals to display results, how to use and control variables, and how to tackle the scientific process.
