After an eventful beginning with a botched science experiment, the uncle leaves to take a shower, telling the kids, "don't touch this, DEFINITELY don't touch that, this will melt a hole through the floor, and this will cause an explosion if you let these two mix. Otherwise, GO NUTS!"
This book is such a fun read, both my daughter and I took turns reading and couldn't stop until we had finished! When we did, it was off to our own lab to construct some of the awesome projects that are written about inside! The instructions were easy to follow, the science behind the projects nicely explained, and the level of fun was through the roof. We built a mentos and diet coke powered rocket kitty, and have been racing them with the neighborhoods kids ever since!
This book is AWESOME. It's fun, motivating, and totally filled with science. It's still our favorite science book for kids!
My son loves science and was intrigued by the project sections. However we found most of them too advanced and involving skills/materials we did not possess.

Schade nur, dass es noch keine deutsche Übersetzung gibt. Wenn meine Kinder genug Englisch können, sind sie vermutlich aus dem Experimentieralter entwachsen.
