This book is dangerous,
This review is from: Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments: All Lab, No Lecture (DIY Science) (Paperback)This book is dangerous. It will cause kids to start thinking. There is a definate risk that they will starting wanting to learn about the world around them instead of just studing the answers to a test. I am old enough I remember chemistry sets under the christmas tree and a high school chemistry class were students actually did experiements instead of just watching. DO you, or your childern, want to actually learn chemistry? Then get this book.

Students do experiments now. :P

Yes, students do experiements now, but NOT in all districts/high schools. Our sd is one of the largest, yet poorest, in our state. There is neither the funds nor equipment/lab space for students to do their own lab work at the high school near us..The teacher demonstrates or a media presentation is used. This is for both physics and chem. It's a real challenge to these students when they hit a college class where many others in there, if not most, have had previous lab experience.Sounds like this book might be of interest and/or helpful in that regard.
