A bumper book of over 60 projects and experiments to inspire and challenge budding young scientists.
Science isn’t just for the classroom. My Big Book of Science is packed with projects that can be done safely at home, encouraging children to experiment, have fun, and learn at the same time. They can become a chemical wizard by making liquids magically change color and dazzle their friends with home-made glow-in-the dark slime, and get to grips with fabulous physics by learning to defy the laws of gravity and master electrical circuits. With brilliant biology projects, they will get to know their own body inside out, and even learn how to make fake poo and snot! None of the projects require specialist equipment: just a few basic items and enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. With My Big Book of Science rainy day afternoons just became a whole lot more fun!
