The intriguing experiments were created by the experts at Mad Science, the world's leading science enrichment provider. Probing questions to be explored include:
Clear and colorful step-by-step directions accompany each experiment so children can easily follow the procedure. Additional background information and fun facts for each experiment lets kids know how it affects them and their world, explains the science behind what they've just done, and gives concrete extensions and ways to learn more about each subject.
