It''s pure bottled magic! A complete kit that ingeniously marries
science and fun in the breakthrough vein of The Bug Book &
Bug Bottle (1.7 million copies in print) and The Bones
Book & Skeleton (1.65 million copies in print), Pop
Bottle Science presents 79 easy, hands-on experiments that
probe the worlds of chemistry, physics, biology, geology, weather,
the human body, and even astronomy.
The Pop Bottle bottle is a perfect miniature science
lab--see-through, flexible, air-tight when necessary, made out of a
durable, shatter-proof plastic and designed with a removable top
that doubles as a funnel. The Pop Bottle book is a lively,
fully illustrated 96-page guide to astonishment. Each experiment
begins with a challenge and ends with an explanation of the
scientific principles involved. Kids can design a volcano and watch
it erupt. Create a tornado-maker and see how twisters work. Make
quicksand--is it solid or liquid? Observe photosynthesis in action.
Simulate Jupiter''s giant red spot, investigate buoyancy,
demonstrate inertia, and discover the Bernoulli principle--which
allows planes to fly. Plus, turn the bottle into a barometer, a
thermometer, walkie-talkie, trombone, compass--or groovy lava lamp.
