Book by Gardner, Robert
A good book for youngsters with scientific needs. The experiments are written in a clear way so every reader might understand them; it is a useful text for science fairs projects, and an electric and magnetism demonstrations guide, also. It may be recommended for 6-12 students and teachers, but is a useful tool for parents, too.
From School Library JournalGr 4-8--These books offer a wealth of demonstrations covering basic principles of electricity, magnetism, light, and heat. As a rule, the well-designed projects build sequentially on one another, developing concepts in the process. A few call for simple calculations, and many are accompanied by black-and-white diagrams. Nevertheless, ``ordinary'' Gardner equals many other authors' best work.Alan Newman, American Chemical Society, Washington, DCCopyright 1995 Cahners Business Information, Inc.. Although extensive lists of science equipment suppliers are provided, most projects require only household materials. They present little new material, and the experiments are not spiced up with interesting historical or science tidbits. Suggestions for additional activities are included. For Gardner's fans, however, these titles are somewhat disappointing. Discu
