"...Easy to duplicate, [these experiments] demonstrate the intended principles and encourage critical thinking. The author's style is lighthearted but clear."--School Library Journal

The force is with us--and these experiments prove it. Whether kids are creating soap-powered fish or sending potato pieces flying into the sky, every activity is as educational as it is entertaining. Demonstrate inertia with a super-amazing Card Shot trick that seems magical but is a simple matter of science. Locate the center of gravity by checking out where a cardboard rocket ship lands (there's a picture to trace to help you make the rocket), and create your own "great salt lake" in the kitchen to demonstrate buoyancy. Ordinary, easy-to-find materials are all you need to get moving on these fun-filled investigations.
