Review:

Not all for the faint-hearted... but they are certainly informative; industrial chemist Downie provides detailed explanations of the science and mathematics behind each.

(Physics World 1900-01-00)

This collection of awesome projects... provides science and math explanations for those who want to understand why they are having so much fun.

(PBS TeacherSource 1900-01-00)

If you are a science teacher, engineer or research scientist, and you want to share your passion for science and engineering with others, you'll love this book.

(T.W. Burns Australian Physics 1900-01-00)

An entertaining book... A book to peruse for some useful ideas to stimulate science teaching.

(Drew McCormick School Science Review 1900-01-00)

Recommended for middle to high school libraries and for any public library seeking something different -- with a broader appeal -- in the way of science project handbooks.

(Midwest Book Review 1900-01-00)

Synopsis:

These curious and offbeat science experiments provide Saturday scientists of all ages with new ways to mess up the basement and gross out mom - all in the name of education! Accomplished physicist and science writer Neil A. Downie presents a wide variety of creative and innovative projects, from whacky motors to designer demolition; from the skidmobile to the human-body posture meter; from the rice-grain ski jump to laser light shows. Each experiment comes with historical background, a list of equipment, detailed instructions, and a full explanation of the science behind it. For those intrigued by any particular experiment, Downie includes follow-up suggestions, which describe ways to tinker with the initial "recipe." Whether printing with invisible ink or marveling at the power of an exploding soda bottle, high school science teachers, inveterate tinkerers, and amateur scientists will find in this book a full range of projects guaranteed to banish the boredom of a long Saturday afternoon.
