Product Description:

The subject of physics can strike fear into hearts of parents and students alike, but this curious little book (7.5"x 7.5") presents physics topics in a fun and engaging fashion, making you want to read and learn. Two pages are devoted to each topic and the 10 experiments will help readers apply the concept. The experiments are found throughout the book and may require some special equipment playdough or modelling clay, lithium watch batteries or battery pack, and LEDs are needed to mold a lion with eyes that light up. Use hot water, ice, and aerosol spray to make an indoor cloud, or assemble your own pinhole camera using a potato chip can, tape, and foil. Illustrations are friendly and inviting and explanations are age appropriate for the middle school level. Cool Physics can take the fear out of learning physics concepts and put some fun into the learning. 112 pgs, hc. ~ Donna
