      3.5 starsThere were times when an enterprising child could actually play with dangerous chemicals and devices in the name of developing an interest in science and engineering. For better (or some say, for worse), those days are past. Sean Connolly not only provides safe "experiments" but he advocates having an adult present for those activities. The fifty experiments are presented in "historical" order and could provide a history of humankind's invention and experimentation. The reader will find [...]

      If you are reading this book, take my warning. This is just about as clickbait as a book can get. Now let me clear this up, the book might be good if you are into learning all the science and history behind certain things, but if, like me, you are in it for fun science experiments, like the name would suggest, then you will be sorely disappointed. First of all, it blatantly lies about certain things, such as "raising the dead" which is never once mentioned throughout. And others, like "splitting [...]

      What causes an avalanche? Find out when you make one. What’s happening during a lunar eclipse? Find out when you recreate it in your living room. How is rocket fuel different from regular fuel? Find out when you build your rocket out of a soda bottle. How long will it take a pizza to be delivered? It doesn’t matter once you’ve built a solar pizza cooker. Easy booktalk on the title alone, though the book itself is maybe a little dense to read through for all but the most intrepid of young s [...]

      It was awesome! A mixture of science and history because it told you the history of the science experiment- who did it, who made the break through and then it gave you a couple of experiment based on the theory of the original some of which were potentially catastrophic!

      For LITTLE KIDS only. Mini weapons is MUCH better. A few fun things though.

      Also Theo Gray's Mad Science: Experiments You Can Do at Home - But Probably Shouldn't and Mad Science 2: Experiments You Can Do At Home, But STILL Probably Shouldn't by Theodore Gray.

      This is a really neat book that is full of science experiments and the history to go along with it. Ever experiment has been grouped into a category and the history of the category is explained before the experiments are listed. For example, on page 136, they begin talking about George Stephenson's stream train. The explain what the stream train is and then go on to explain the science behind the steam train on page 140. This is followed by a science experiment that closely resembles what was ju [...]

      Für junge Forscher eine nette Zusammenstellung von Themen und Experimenten, auch wenn diese alles andere als "voll gefährlich" sind (selbst für Kinder). Die Zeichnungen hätten einen Tick netter sein können, aber sonst ist dieses Buch eine nette Einsteigerdroge.

      Interesting, for a look about science. The author made it story-like. Best science book I have read this year so far.
