5.0 out of 5 stars Making memories, one experiment at a time, April 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments: From Boiling Ice and Exploding Soap to Erupting Volcanoes and Launching Rockets, 30 Inventive Experiments to Excite the Whole Family! (Paperback)
Not only does this book help kids learn, but it takes the approach that famed professor Randy Pausch (The Last Lecture) called, "the head fake," meaning that the kids are having fun doing science, and that learning is a byproduct of that joy. My kids and I have vowed to do at least one experiment a day over the summer, and I think that is an easily attainable goal, since Adamick's experiments are not only easy enough to accomplish one day at a time, but they are also designed with the working parent in mind (i.e., inexpensive). This book is going to make a perfect accompaniment to summer fun, as it will not only provide memories of time spent with dad, but it will also keep their brains engaged, rather than turn to mush by watching TV or playing video games all summer long.
