Blue Ribbon Science Projects
Author Glen Vechionne's collections of science fair projects have proven wildly popular, with more than 232,000 copies sold. Kids really like the straight-up approaches and accessible experiments?and this volume is sure to help budding scientists win that prized blue ribbon, too. From finding out whether chewing gum improves memory to testing static electricity with a bowl of cereal, every idea is thoroughly enjoyable and educational. The engaging topics include fun with critters, where dog lovers can learn if Fido can hear music and see yellow; creative chemistry with soft drinks and milk; and lots of botany (including a look at whether honey can prevent mold). Plus, Vecchione provides great tips on how to catch the judges' attention, create a journal, and display the project.
