Review "This book is an impressive collection of experiments for kids (and adults). The instructions are clear and the observed phenomena are well explained. Curious minds will learn and enjoy!" — Steve Fleming, PhD, Professor of Instruction, Temple University "As a busy mom, I’m excited to say 'yes' to more projects with my kids simply by opening a book and checking the materials list. As a chemistry teacher, I want real science, explained at the appropriate level, and experiments that always work. This book sets up even the most scientifically-challenged person to become a STEAM wizard while still keeping the material fresh for more experienced explorers."—Megan Larsen, High School Chemistry Teacher, Desert Vista High School, Phoenix AZ "Children are naturally curious, and Crystal's experiments with everyday objects provide a fun way to help children--and their parents--understand a little more about the world around them."—Kathryn D. Burke, PhD, General Chemistry Teaching Labs Manager, University of Delaware "This brilliant book is perfect for both my classroom and my own children at home. I can draw from the 'whys and hows' in the book to sound like an expert and refer to the suggested questions to extend learning and incorporate the scientific method."―Holly Davies, M.Ed, Advanced Learning Specialist at Utah Virtual Academy "This beautiful book is easy to read and the directions are easy to follow. I love that the book not only explains how each experiment works, it also explains the science behind each one. These are fun, colorful, and attention-grabbing activities for all ages!"― Nancy Ward, M.Ed., Administrator of Educational Support, Jordan School District, Salt Lake City, Utah “There are difficulty ratings and time estimations, and you can see from the great photos how challenging each experiment is... there are some fun, easy activities with teachable moments, all presented in a colorful, enticing way.” ―The Telegraph About the Author CRYSTAL CHATTERTON is an educator, a chemist, and a stay-at-home mom.
