Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes is a geek-chic look at Spangler’s latest collection of tricks and try-it-at-home activities that reveal the secrets of science in unexpected ways. Amazing photographs accompany the step-by-step instructions, and simple explanations uncover the how-to and why for each activity. Make potatoes fly, bowling balls float, and soda explode on command.
Each of these giant test tubes holds a cool science experiment. Learn about super strong bubbles that you can touch, make and mold your own super bouncing ball, write secret messages with disappearing ink and make a batch of slimy, gooey Insta-Worms.
It’s a science lab in a bag. Make up a pile of Insta-Snow, experiment with waterproof sand and explore the science of UV light as you use the sun to make white beads instantly change colors. Grow a test tube dinosaur, learn how to make water disappear and make squishy jelly crystals. Recommended for children 8 and up.
