Junk Drawer Physics


Product Description:

"More than enough to keep scientifically curious kids busy on rainy days." —Publishers Weekly

"It's the perfect book for the curious kid 9 to 14 who enjoys learning by doing and loves investigating not only how things work but why they work.  With straightforward instructions, inexpensive and easy to find materials, plus photographs that illustrate key steps in each experiment, the book is definitely user friendly. The Science Behind It section sheds further light on each experiment and the science principles and terms it illustrates.  This is an excellent book to keep your fourth to eighth grader busy, engaged and learning throughout the summer, as well as any other time of year." — Children's Books

"Mercer's categorization of types of experiment—force, energy, momentum, light, magnetism and pressure—also describes his educational outlook. There's no teaching more forceful or energetic—no pedagogical principle more suffused with light or magnetic force—than the one in Junk Drawer Physics." —BookPage

"I've seen other books before that promised "easy" experiments for kids, but this one IS easy … and fun." —

"These little experiments provide a great introduction to a lesson or can be used to as an activity to illustrate a physics concept. One word of warning—you might want to save the air horn for homework." —NSTA Recommends

"Accessibility can be a major factor in comprehending abstract concepts, and this book suggests that you hardly need a fancy laboratory to learn...Junk drawers are an almost universal fixture in most homes, and this book helps readers representing a wide range of readiness to experience basic scientific concepts for themselves." —Booklist
