About the Author
Vicki Cobb is the author of more than 85 highly entertaining nonfiction books for children. Ever since 1972, when Science Experiments You Can Eat was first published, Cobb's lighthearted approach to hands-on science has become her trademark for getting kids involved in experiences that create real learning. It is no surprise that she is known as the "Julia Child of hands-on science." Today's popular buzzwords in education, "hands-on science," "experimental learning," "outcome-based," "multi-disciplinary," and "critical thinking," are embodied in Vicki Cobb's work. Vicki has performed "Science Surprises," her interactive and engrossing show for kids, in 49 of the 50 states and internationally. She uses her expertise, humor, wit, and background as an educator to inspire teachers to make teaching science the high point of their day. She is president and founder of InkThinkTank, LLC, a company that focuses on the contribution that nonfiction literature and its authors can make to education. She contributes to three blogs: Interesting Nonfiction for Kids, Education Update, and the Huffington Post. In 2012, Vicki received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Visit www.vickicobb.com to learn more.
