Format: Paperback
We (my 8 year old son and me) are very enthousiastic about this book. After borrowing several similar books from the library in the past 4 years, this is the first one that really works! It is easy, it is clear and it is fun. You don't need to go shopping far and wide before you can start but most of the stuff you need is available from your kitchen cuboard or shed. What you need is clearly stated, and the instructions are easy to follow. The photographs are attractive and functional. They give a good idea of what your end-product will look like. A very good buy for young scientist enthusiasts (and grown up ones too!)

My 9 year old son brought a copy of this book home from school and we were very impressed with it so bought this along with the one on electricity.

The book is very clear, it sets out all that will be needed for each project and then shows you step by step using pictures along with the text.

This is a great gift for an inquisitive child. I would recommend filling a small box with some parts that will be needed to give with the book as they will want to start making things straight away.

What a great book! It should be back in print! 24 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My son has checked this book out of the school library so many times he has it memorized! Great fun at home -- inexpensive science projects that really work and are fun to do --- even for Mom! The Rocket created from a 2 liter soft drink bottle and powered by water and a bicycle pump is great. Other favorites include the Archimedes' Screw that moves popcorn and the Rubber Band Powered Boat. Bright, colorful, lots of pictures, easy to understand and easy to build --even for the science challenged!

Too frustrating!!! 7 Sept. 2007
By Lucia Christina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
I homeschool and bought this book with great enthusiasm. All three projects we attempted were a complete bust. We spent hours collecting all the parts needed, then cutting and preparing. The directions do not go into enough detail and you don't realize, until you have to start over, that something was left out or assumed that you understood. After several attempts and finally getting the projects built, they wouldn't work anyway. My son was off building his own parachute(which worked great) while I was trying to get anything I could find in my kitchen to go up the Archimedes screw!!There must be better resources out there than this completely frustrating book.
