SMART SCIENCE TRICKS

Age Range: 8 - 14

KIRKUS REVIEW

Ninety-five super science tricks and brief experiments to delight science teachers and young readers gleaned from the author’s “Trick of the Month” feature in Physics Teacher magazine. Gardner, who has authored nearly 70 science titles, has another winner. Each trick explains what you need, what to do and why it works with a helpful line drawing. All projects can be done in a minute or two and involve items readily available at home: water, eggs, balloons, playing cards, pencils and such. Topics include tricks with water, motion, air, light, mirrors, optical illusions, mathematics, sound, electricity, magnetism and gravity. Great science-starters for teachers and outstanding for children and teens interested in either magic or science. It will send them scrambling to learn more about important science topics.
