When I was a junior in high school, I took physics. I HATED this class, found it difficult, irrelevant and uninteresting. How good would it have been to be exposed to a book like Physics for Kids long before then! I might have felt completely differently.
Inside this title are all kinds of experiments and activities that are designed to engage kids. Here is information about many scientists, among them Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton, Pierre Curie and Albert Einstein for some household names and others whom I did not know including Katharine Burr Blodgett, Ruby Payne Scott and Lise Meitner to name just three. (Kudos for including women) After each scientist is introduced, there is a well illustrated experiment for kids to try. For example, after reading about Thomas Young and wave theory, do the experiment entitled Light Interference and observe wave patterns in water and then experiment with fringe patterns created by light waves as they move through slits.
I highly recommend this book for school and home libraries. It is well geared to STEM studies.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book. All opinions are my own.
