Infused with Helaine Becker s trademark wit and irrepressible energy, "Science on the Loose" encourages young readers to release their inner scientist so that they can think, do, and learn in the most entertaining way possible. Whether it s to test density in fruit, determine dominant genes, or make slimy goo, each experiment follows accepted scientific procedure, is easy to conduct, can be safely performed using ordinary household materials, and makes for a satisfying, surprising adventure in science. Each experiment features a What s Going On? component that explains the science behind the results in a clear and concise way, so even when an experiment just feels like silly fun, children are learning about chemistry, climate change, genes, the senses, photosynthesis, the scientific method even Einstein s Theory of Relativity. From fooling our senses to discovering whether Jell-o can have brain waves to creating ice cream by kicking a can, "Science on the Loose" feeds into children s natural curiosity about the world around them. A helpful listing outlines all the scientific principles covered in the book an indispensable tool for teachers and a mark of a serious science book for parents. Claudia Davila s amusing illustrations strike the perfect note."
