Like all DK books, this one is gorgeous. Just flipping through the pages will entice you to play with science. Some experiments are classics, like paper airplanes, slime, and an erupting volcano. Others invite exploration of current issues, like water filtration and wind power. And plenty delight the senses, like kaleidoscopes, rubber band planets, a dancing snake, and baked Alaska. Each experiment is clearly laid out with a photo of materials needed and step by step instructions which include photographs. My favorite features are the extras that follow the experiment. “How it Works” uses diagrams and text to explain the science. Also the “Real World Science” adds an example kids will connect to and allows them to see the concept in action. Many of the experiments also have a “Take it Further” feature to extend experimentation.They really are “super cool” projects!
