About The Book

This classic, best-selling book full of hundreds of irresistible, easy-to-perform science tricks and bets is back, and it's better than ever! If you'd like to know how to throw an egg across the room without breaking it, how to burn a candle underwater, how to light a fluorescent lightbulb with a balloon, or how to make fireworks from a grape, this is a must-have book.

What makes this edition of We Dare You! different? Throughout the book there are QR codes that will instantly connect kids to highly entertaining videos on all devices, showcasing various experiments throughout the book, and directed by author Vicki Cobb. Best of all, Cobb invites readers to make their own videos of these tricks and publish them on the official We Dare You! videos website. Readers can now do science and show business together—an unbeatable combination!

Behind it all is solid science. Principles of gravity, mechanics, fluids, logic, geometry, energy, and perception are presented in a way that shows these principles in action. And it's all written on good authority. In 2012 Vicki Cobb received a Lifetime Achievement Prize from the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
