An ideal book for budding young scientists,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Science Experiments (Hardcover)
Having browsed through it in a bookshop, I bought this book for my grandson because it has one of the best sets of practical experiments I've seen. In addition, each exercise has a simple account of the science behind the procedure, so it's not just "gee-whiz". The exercises vary from the very simple to the quite elaborate, and in some cases (as a retired scientist myself) I found myself wishing for the facilities of a workshop. However, given the number of offerings, this is no great problem, and a bright child will enjoy helping with the construction of gadgets, and even more so in performing the experiments personally. Highly recommended.
