"Kids have a natural desire to learn and experiment," said Sobey, a University of Washington instructor and author of several science book, including the newly published "Wacky Water Fun with Science" and "Fantastic Flying Fun with Science." If parents foster that, then kids will grow up naturally empowered to think like a scientist." (Seattle Times 2000-04-01)

When kids from all over told Ed Sobey that they just couldn't wait to dive into another one of his awesome science activity books, he took them at their word...literally. So get ready to dive (and splash, sink, and sail too). You asked for it, after all. Wacky Water Fun with Science features everything (even the kitchen sink) you'll ever need to totally immerse yourself in all things wet, wild, and altogether wonderful. Inspiring curious kids to find their own answers and solutions to all their questions about the wonderful world of water, this lively and educational collection of projects promises hours of slippery fun at home, at school--even at the beach! Ideal for kids 10 and up, these fascinating projects include: building waterwheels and turbines; making a miniature salty ocean; blowing bubbles and studying water's surface tension; experimenting with buoyancy, pressure, and temperature; constructing wind-powered, balloon-powered, and battery-powered boats; building your own water clocks and underwater viewers.
