What Does It Teach?
Why just perform experiments with young scientists when you can engage them? The experiments in the Steve Spangler Book Set are aimed at getting kids to touch, feel, play, and experience the wonders of science. We want you and your kids to come away from the hands-on projects and demonstrations contained in these books wanting more. Together, we'll make life long learners.
Science Fair Connection:
The Spangler Book Set is amazing: breathtaking pictures, step-by-step instructions, and in-depth explanations! All you have to do is pick an experiment and you've got your science fair project all wrapped up, right? Well‚ not exactly. The experiments in the books are great starting points, but to make an awesome science fair project you need to identify a variable. A variable is a factor in your experiment that you can change or alter. Depending on which experiment you choose as the basis for your project, you should have plenty of options. Just remember, once you identify your variable, you must keep the rest of the factors in your experiment the same.

Great pack! review by Mike Aguilera on 5/14/2013
Hello everyone! I just received the books from Steve and I must say that it really met all my expectations. Besides the beautiful pictures, the explanations of each demonstration are very well detailed. Doesn't matter if you're a teacher or a student, you'll understand everything about it! It has funny comments as well! If you live outside the USA, the shipping cost could be a little expensive, but it's worth it. Thank you Steve and all your wonderful staff.

Thanks for sending the books so quickly!! I will be doing summer school this summer and I wanted something that will make the kids get excited about missing thier summer. These experiments are it! I have plans to rewrite some of our curriculum this summer and incorporate some of these experiments into our curriculum.

Can't wait to do these experiments review by Lori M. on 1/11/2013
I home-school my 9th grader, and needed some hands on ideas. I can't wait to try some of these experiments, and neither can he! This is going to make us really look forward to science!
