From the Teacher Institute of the famed Exploratorium in San Francisco comes a unique, hands-on activity book that provides instructions for creating junior versions, or "snacks," of many of the museum's amazing exhibits. Designed by science teachers, these snacks can be used as classroom demonstrations, labs, science projects, or just for fun. All of the projects are easy to build with common materials.
This new edition includes updated activities plus several new snacks, illustrations, references, tips from teachers, and correlations to national science standards.
Using The Exploratorium Science Snackbook as your guide, you can construct an anti-gravity mirror, create electrical "fleas," duck into a kaleidoscope, or build a bicycle wheel gyro. Discover how to create exhibits that explore the mysteries of:
