Slimy Science and Awesome Experiments by Susan Martineau


Slimy Science and Awesome Experiments by Susan Martineau

A wonderful collection of wickedly slimy but perfectly simple science experiments! Balloon Blecher, Ectoplasmic Gunk, Floating Eyeballs and Pus-filled Boils are some of the activities guaranteed to appeal to gross-loving young scientists. All the projects are tried and tested, use everyday materials and have clear, step-by-step instructions. A brief fact file also explains the science behind them and there are extra 'Weird or What?' sections to amaze and amuse. Freaky, fascinating and fun!


This effective title will draw in even those who aren't strong science students.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
