Would you believe that you could throw an egg across the room without breaking it? Burn a candle underwater? We Dare You! is a gigantic collection of irresistible, easy-to-perform science experiments, tricks, bets, and games kids can do at home with everyday household objects. Thanks to the principles of gravity, mechanics, fluids, logic, geometry, energy, and perception, kids will find countless hours of fun with the selections included in this book.
A science-experiment bonanza. Divided into chapters with titles such as "The Human Wonder," "Fluid Feats," "Energy Entrapments," and "Mathematical Duplicity," this volume has more than 200 experiments with clear how-to instructions. All of the projects are doable and the science behind them is explained in a kid-accessible manner. Children can make nutty putty or a sandwich-bag bomb, use a magnet to extract the iron from breakfast cereal, or tie a knot in a chicken bone. Experiments that require adult supervision are noted. Black-and-white line drawings add humor and clarify instructions. This is a great resource for teachers, parents, and budding scientists-and for any youngster who can't resist a challenge.-Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
