  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #2 December 2001
    Gr. 6-8. This clearly laid-out book presents all sorts of ideas for science-fair projects. A typical presentation is a two-page entry with a list of supplies, a step-by-step procedure, a brief description of the expected result, and an explanation of the science underlying the result. Useful and occasionally comical line drawings illustrate the text. The projects appear in 10 thematic chapters, such as "Chemists & Cooks" and "Plants & Animals." Some of the more unusual activities include mixing a medieval paint palette using an egg yolk and a variety of home-made pigments, making a medieval war machine with a catapult and a sling, extracting DNA from chicken livers, and testing whether dogs perceive color. A good supplemental title for science-fair collections. ((Reviewed December 15, 2001)) Copyright 2001 Booklist Reviews
