  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 September #2
    With all the style and intellectual authority that readers would expect from the Smithsonian's DK series, this book affirms that science is not strictly a discipline to be studied behind a school desk, but rather is a demonstrable set of principles and properties that can be reinforced using simple found objects. This principle is eloquently supported in a forward written by Jack Andraka, a young scientist who pioneered new means of cancer detection at the age of fifteen. Directions are clear, materials are easily accessible, and results are rooted in fundamental principles of physics and chemistry. Each experiment can be completed at home, but is also easily adapted to a large-group classroom setting. Though not all projects are innovative, what sets this book apart is that each experiment is accompanied by real-world applications that tie new observations to kids' existing understanding and offer endless opportunities for STEM-related discussions. Not only are young scientists encouraged to experiment, they are challenged to apply the information gleaned to real-world problem-solving. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
