Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4 Up-The experiments presented here range from very basic to fairly complex. Standard projects, such as a lava-flow volcano, a bottled tornado, and a potato polarity indicator are included. Directions for much more complex demonstrations, such as creating and using a cyanometer (to keep track of changes in sky color) or testing hydrodynamic hull designs, illustrate the upper range of material. Experiments also cover a wide range of topics including food science, chemistry, astronomy, and botany. Each one has a list of supplies (generally common household products), detailed directions, expected results, an explanation, and display tips. Safety precautions are mentioned but not highlighted. Precise measurements of the results are not emphasized. Well indexed and accurately illustrated with black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings, this book is a good starting place for finding successful science-fair projects.

I agree with Cynthia A Albano from Wood-Ridge, New Jersey United States. My daughter and I tried the Springing Spring Project and it DID NOT work. Now, she needs to talk to her teacher about changing the experiment. I recommended to her to show that the author is wrong and how the experiment should work.

The author obviously put alot of work into thinking up some of the projects, but they are like projects from out school lab book that "demonstrate" certain scientific principles, they don't actualy work as "science fair projects" because they
don't set out to solve a question. Its like "build tornado" or "build this" or "build that" but they are not sceice fair prjects. I think its a good curiosity book to have around if you're into tinkering with stuff, but I dont think its good for coming up with a science fair project.

Unfortunately, the first project my son attempted was on electromagnetism --- and it didnt work!!! We checked, double-checked, and triple-checked his set-up and it was exact - but no way could we make this project work! Now he's forced to go back to his teacher, hope she allows him to revise the project which she'd already approved, and start all over. This time, at least - we'll make sure he tries the project out before he submits his ideas to the teacher for approval!

Must have for anyone who has a science fair coming up. Good directions and picture. The step by step guide makes it easy for any student aged 12-14 to successfully complete a project.
