9780201608649: Bill Nye The Science Guy's Big Blast Of Science

Bill Nye The Science Guy knows how cool science can be. After all, everything in the universe involves science. And you already think scientifically everyday, even if you don't know it. So get ready for a universe of amazing fun—you'll have a blast. Read about quarks, quasars, and the questions that scientists are still trying to figure out. And find spectacular science projects that let you see how cool science guys and gals can be. Do you know: that everything you see is made up of just 92 kinds of atoms? why this book and your hands are mostly empty space? how to launch a hot-air baloon? that light comes as both waves and particles (but doesn't come out of a black hole?) how to build a miniature electric motor? why microwave ovens and lamps are like radios? how a television show arrives at your TV set? that we move more than 100 miles through space every second? about entropy? ozone? absolute zero? heavy water? pulsars?

About the Author:

Bill Nye The Science Guy hosts the syndicated television show on science ”Disney Presents Bill Nye The Science Guy.” He studied at Cornell University, has won eleven Emmy Awards, and has appeared on TV shows ranging from ”The New Mickey Mouse Club” to ”Late Night with David Letterman.”

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. In a breezy, informative manner, Nye conducts readers on a whirlwind tour of science, including subjects such as the scientific method, matter, fundamental forces, heat, light, electricity, magnetism, waves, weather, and space. The breathless pace doesn't leave much time to dig into a particular subject, but Nye communicates well in the space allotted. Zippy black-and-white drawings and occasionally zany photographs of the author give the pages an informal look. Kids turned off by more conventional books may pick up some of the basics of science here because Nye, Emmy Award-winning host of "Disney Presents Bill Nye, the Science Guy," communicates in such an accessible style that learning is only a little more labor intensive than listening. Is science a blast, as the title suggests? In this entertaining format, it is. Carolyn Phelan
