100 Science Experiments by Kate Knighton, Georgina Andrews

An action-packed collection of 100 simple science experiments combining fun with scientific investigation and covers the basics of physics, chemistry and biology.

Includes making crystals, electrical circuits, paper planes, kaleidoscopes, balloon rockets, shadow puppets and much more.


This fun and colourful book contains lots of simple science experiments. Most of the experiments can be done with everyday household objects and many children can do them on their own. Contains clear step-by-step instructions, illustrations and an explanation of what’s going on. Family Interest

I absolutely adore this book. There are lots of old favourites but plenty of new ideas too, such as how to make your own compass (I wouldn't rely on it for real orienteering) and weather vane. If your child is inquisitive, this will be a godsend over the summer - Annalisa Barbieri - Guardian.co.uk

Combines hands-on fun with scientific investigation and covers all areas of science, even simple genetics! It includes a glossary and internet links to recommended websites with lots more experiments and activities. Creative Steps magazine

One hell of a starting point for parents hoping to show their kids some really cool and simple examples of science in action. Silicon Republic
