Science has never been so easy--or so much fun!

With The Everything Kids' Science Experiments Book , all you need to do is gather a few household items and you can recreate dozens of mind-blowing, kid-tested science experiments. High school science teacher Tom Robinson shows you how to expand your scientific horizons from biology, chemistry, physics, technology, and engineering--to outer space.

You'll discover answers to questions like:
--Is it possible to blow up a balloon without actually blowing into it?
--What is inside coins?
--Can a magnet ever be "turned off"?
--Do toilets always flush in the same direction?
--Can a swimming pool be cleaned with just the breath of one person?

Whether you've always been interested in STEM or you're looking for a cool science fair project, you'll want to test these fun and educational experiments for yourself!
