From the Publisher
This fun and educational book includes:
100+ STEAM Projects
Explore and create using Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math! You'll get to design, build, invent, try out new ideas, and learn awesome skills just like a scientist, artist, or engineer.
Experiment and Discover
Figure out answers by using the scientific method: ask questions, do background research, formulate a hypothesis, design experiments, test the hypothesis, analyze the data, and draw conclusions.
Each project includes a simple list of materials and clear, step-by-step instructions. Learn new words and ideas from the experiments and from a handy glossary at the end of the book.
Most of the supplies used in this book are things you probably already have at home! Get creative with paper, paint, rubber bands, empty bottles, cardboard tubes, jars, tape, and lots more.
About the Author
CRYSTAL CHATTERTON is an educator, a chemist, and a stay-at-home mom. Her blog, The Science Kiddo, grew from her eagerness to find exciting ways to introduce her son to science. Since that time, she has made it her mission to help kids fall in love with science. She lives in Portland, Oregon, where she homeschools her three children.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
"This book is an impressive collection of experiments for kids (and adults). The instructions are clear and the observed phenomena are well explained. Curious minds will learn and enjoy!" — Steve Fleming, PhD, Professor of Instruction, Temple University
"As a busy mom, I’m excited to say 'yes' to more projects with my kids simply by opening a book and checking the materials list. As a chemistry teacher, I want real science, explained at the appropriate level, and experiments that always work. This book sets up even the most scientifically-challenged person to become a STEAM wizard while still keeping the material fresh for more experienced explorers."—Megan Larsen, High School Chemistry Teacher, Desert Vista High School, Phoenix AZ
"Children are naturally curious, and Crystal's experiments with everyday objects provide a fun way to help children--and their parents--understand a little more about the world around them."—Kathryn D. Burke, PhD, General Chemistry Teaching Labs Manager, University of Delaware
"This brilliant book is perfect for both my classroom and my own children at home. I can draw from the 'whys and hows' in the book to sound like an expert and refer to the suggested questions to extend learning and incorporate the scientific method."―Holly Davies, M.Ed, Advanced Learning Specialist at Utah Virtual Academy
"This beautiful book is easy to read and the directions are easy to follow. I love that the book not only explains how each experiment works, it also explains the science behind each one. These are fun, colorful, and attention-grabbing activities for all ages!"― Nancy Ward, M.Ed., Administrator of Educational Support, Jordan School District, Salt Lake City, Utah
“There are difficulty ratings and time estimations, and you can see from the great photos how challenging each experiment is... there are some fun, easy activities with teachable moments, all presented in a colorful, enticing way.” ―The Telegraph--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Being an American book, it's uses American units - pretty shocking to see Fahrenheit in a childens' book in the 21st century.
Bought for 5 year old who loves experiments. I'll say that we've already done some of them as they are covered in numerous other books but he still enjoys redoing them and is perhaps better able to understand the science behind it?!?!
The materials are easy to obtain if not already in possession.
