About this item
Investigate the most important phenomena in biology, chemistry, and physics by conducting more than 100 fun experiments. A broad yet elaborate introduction to the physical and life sciences, this kit is intended to expose children to the full spectrum of science, and show firsthand how the core disciplines of biology, chemistry, and physics interrelate. The full-color, 112-page book is organized into 15 chapters: 1. Water: adhesion, cohesion, buoyancy, density, states of water, surface tension 2. Air: Bernoulli’s principle, , gases, pressure, wind, molecular theory 3. Heat: temperature, evaporation, heat energy 4. Sound: music, sound waves, vibration 5. Forces: centrifugal force, energy, weight, gravity, inertia, pendulums, rockets 6. Magnetism: magnetic fields, compasses, magnetic poles, radiation 7. Electricity: electric motors, lightbulbs, simple circuits, static electricity 8. Electromagnetism: electromagnets, the EM spectrum, waves, current indicators 9. Light: camera obscura, light and shadow, light intensity 10. Optics: microscopes, telescopes, lenses, prisms, reflection, refraction, optical illusions 11. Plants and Animals: seeds, microscopic organisms, plant cycles, plants and light 12. Colors: color theory, printing, spectrum 13. The Human Body: brain, eyes, the circulatory system, ears 14. Chemistry: acids, bases, chromatography, filtration, reactions, tricks, safety 15. Earth and Sun: globes, day and night, seasons, rotation, sundials, time zones
