Description

A fantastic foray into the world of school day science which involve turning household goods into exciting but informative experiments. Dr Keith Souter explores the science behind these simple but fun experiments and how by understanding how they work, we can explain the world around us, from the position of the Harvest Moon to the composition and osmosis of food and drink. Discover how to make your own kaleidoscope, crystals and even a steam turbine from an old cocoa tin - and why you'll never want to compost a floppy potato again. A must-buy book for everyone interested in what happens when and why. The Theory of Everything is contained in these fact-filled pages. Did you know? - Steam engine designer, George Stephenson, was inspired by a kettle lid rattling under the pressure of steam - Moth balls or Alka Seltzer can be turned into a self-propelling boat - Mirrors can be used to help people recover from strokes and even paralysis.
