Synopsis

Self-Destructing Science: Space by Isabel Thomas

Shortlisted for the ASE Book of the Year Award 2017. Warning: this book will self-destruct! Packed full of fun and exciting projects which use its pages in different ways, this book will have you tearing, folding, cutting, experimenting and scribbling as you find out all about the wonders of space. As each page is destroyed, you'll make everything from a Martian bug to a pocket rocket, using nothing more than the pages of the book and a few simple household items. The easy-to-follow instructions and amazing illustrations mean that science has never been so fun!

Reviews

You can keep a moon diary, make a pinhole viewer and a sundial, dress an astronaut, guide a Mars rover, make a Martian bug, answer a quiz and take part in the Lunarlympics. And that's only half the book! A terrific learning resource, or just great fun, this is a really engaging activity book. -- minervareads minervareads An ideal gift! This is a great book, full of facts and relevant activities and experimenting. -- Alaric Thompson Science in Education
