Editorial Reviews


The creative author of this book has filled it with novel and interesting demonstrations of physics, chemistry, and electronics experiments that are perfect for readers who love to tinker.

(Laura J. Lising Science Books and Films)

The science in these projects is very nicely explained and the directions are good enough for their completion.

(Chemical Education Today)

The book is a job well done, and I recommend it for anyone trying to get physics across to non-specialist audiences.

(Chris Waltham Physics Today 1900-01-00)

Interesting and written in very clear conversational style... most people will want to try these experiments because they are fun.

(F. W. Menk The Physicist)

This is a book that science teachers will love. With simple experiments that illustrate physical principles and then use basic mathematics to explain why they work, it will liven up classes for a wide age range.

(Mark Kidger, astronomer at La Palma Observatory and La Laguna University)

Ink Sandwiches, Electric Worms, and 37 Other Experiments for Saturday Science is a great book. Good experiments with detailed explantions. One downfall might be a little complicated for grades 1-8.
