Super Science Projects: Klutz Book Reviews
Klutz comes up with some SUPER books about SCIENCE (seriously, we’re impressed) that include pretty much everything you need to: do explosive science that’s a real blast, build a solar car, experiment with batteries, build and launch a foam rocket and create some high-performance LEGO projects!
Klutz Boom Splat Kablooey Book
The editors at Klutz must know the kind of science most kids want to do: the kind that blows up stuff! The Boom Splat Kablooey kit comes with all the special equipment you need to make ordinary ingredients from the kitchen go boom in impressive, yet non-destructive, style. Turn table salt and soda into a backyard geyser, use special balloons to turn a regular pop into a big ol' BOOM and make the Can of A Thousand Pops explode again and again and again and ... you get the picture.
The Solar Car Book
The Klutz Solar Car Book is also a complete build-it-yourself solar car kit! The book has very clear instructions and detailed illustrations making assembling the car easy. Once you have your car assembled, you can try it out! Instructions are included for making your car work outdoors by sunlight and indoors with a battery. Have fun with your car. Make it go in circles, or try to beat the Klutz Solar Car X-treme Team's time in the 25-foot dash, the 50-yard dash, a circle marathon or the 25-circle marathon. The rest of the book is filled with fun and interesting information about solar power, how your solar car works and tips to turn your solar car into an award-winning science project.
LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions
