Product Description:

Publisher Description:

So many of the everyday products we use are created through the wonders of modern chemistry. From toilet paper to body cream, soap, and perfume, humans rely on chemistry to make our lives easier. Fascinating experiments explain how compounds are mixed together and how body care products are made. Easy experiments allow budding scientists to test theories.

Category Description for Chemtastrophe!:

Get to know the science around subjects that are familiar and encountered on a daily basis. Discover the history of items like Super Glue®, Post-It® Notes and nonstick pans. Employing the scientific method, questions are stated and then through observation and experimentation discoveries were made. Many of the products we use today came to us through someone's accidental discovery: the failed experiments of Roy Plunkett produced Teflon?¢, and Patsy Sherman discovering the technology to create Scotchguard?¢ when trying to develop a special type of rubber. Resources are provided for children who want to learn more and a glossary will help with newly introduced words. A couple of opportunities to test out some hypotheses are found in each book. These are simple experiments that can be done with home items. These offer students the chance to make a discovery - who knows? Maybe they will discover the next big thing! 32 pgs, pb. ~ Donna
