A collection of quick and inexpensive science experiments that work you through electricity, introduce you to chemistry, and present project ideas guaranteed to get your kids excited to do science.
You'll learn how to make the fourth state of matter right in your classroom (Hint: solids, liquids and gases are the first three states!), mix cold light, build a simple electrostatic motor, spin electrostatic motors, and make a regular old chemistry beaker totally disappear using optical density.
Includes step by step instructions both written and also on bonus videos, written explanations of the scientific concepts behind the experiment, additional questions you can ask students for further study, and more.
Topics covered: states of matter, chemistry, physics of light, chemiluminescence, electricity, magnetism, static charges, optical index of refraction, and a bonus section on tips for teaching science in your classroom.
Includes detailed project steps, explanations and key concepts, tips & tricks, and access to instructional videos.
