Great real-world explanations,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crisp Packet Fireworks: Maverick Science to Try at Home (Naked Scientists) (Hardcover)A really well set out book with useful illustrations and clear photography. As a chemistry teacher, I have found the explanations suitable for most secondary school pupils and the real world scenarios are great for showing scientific relevance.
A word of warning: many of the experiments are "repeats" eg making a red cabbage indicator, hurricane in a bottle, coke and mentos, so the book is better for a first purchase than an addition to an experienced "kitchen scientist"'s lab!
