This is not your ordinary book of science experiments - it's a geek-chic look at a collection of Steve Spangler's tricks and try-it-at-home activities that reveal the secrets of science in unexpected ways. What makes this book different from others is the amazing photography. Over 245 color photographs accompany the step-by-step instructions, and simple explanations uncover the "how-to" and "why" for each activity. Make potatoes fly, cornstarch turn into quicksand, 2-liter bottles of soda explode on command and much more. No need for complicated lab equipment or impossible-to-find chemicals. Steve shows you how to use things to create amazing experiences that make people say, "How did you do that?" Features more than 25 experiments that are fun for all ages; some experiments should be performed by an adult as a demonstration for children. Paperback, 160 pages.
