It's never been more important to engage a child's scientific curiosity, and Sean Connolly knows just how you can do it— with lively, hands-on, seemingly"unsafe"experiments that pop, ooze, crash, and teach! Re-create the Hadron Collider in a microwave with marshmallows, calculator, and a ruler— it won't jeopardize Earth using a simulated Big Bang, but will demonstrate the speed of light. By letting kids stand on the shoulders of Aristotle, Newton, Einstein, the Wright brothers, Marie Curie, Darwin, Watson and Crick, and more, The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science is an uncommonly engaging guide to science, and the great stories of the men and ladies behind the science. Rediscover the wheel and axle with all the ancient Sumerians, and carry out an astounding experiment demonstrating the theory of angular momentum. Build a easy telescope— just like Galileo's— and find the 4 moons he found orbiting Jupiter (an act that helped land him in prison ). Now, the author of The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science, takes it one particular step further: He leads kids through the history of science, and after that creates amazing however simple experiments that demonstrate essential scientific principles. And it's tasty! Round up all your friends and track the spread of"illness"making use of body glitter with an experiment inspired by Edward Jenner, the vaccination pioneer who's credited with saving much more lives than any other person in background. Take a less potentially catastrophic strategy to electricity than Ben Franklin did with all the Lightning Mouth experiment. Tame fire just like a Neanderthal employing the Fahrenheit 451 experiment.
