Praise for The Exploratorium Science Snackbook

"The revised edition of the Science Snackbook allows you to bring the fascination of the Exploratorium into your classroom. You and your students can construct classroom versions of some of the most successful Exploratorium exhibits. Your students' imaginations will take off as they begin with the guided inquiry suggestions and find more and more ways to investigate the science concepts."
—Arthur Eisenkraft, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Science Education at University of Massachusetts, Boston; past president, National Science Teachers Association

"The activities in this book are not just a great set of investigations that encourages thought and problem solving for your students . . . it is a wonderful read. The anecdotal approach gives greater life to the content as well as enticing teachers to expand their repertoire and think and work outside the box with their students!"
—Susan M. Pritchard, PhD, National Board certified, early adolescence/science middle school teacher, La Habra, California; online university instructor, San Diego, California

"A wonderful set of resources and references. The comprehensive list of places to shop for supplies immediately gave me ideas for creating and adapting snacks to my classroom."
—Laura Reasoner Jones, school-based technology specialist, founder of GEMS (Girls Excelling in Math and Science), Herndon, Virginia

"This new Snackbook is an all-you-can-eat buffet of delights from San Francisco's world-famous 'museum of awareness.' These ingenious recipes show you how to create an Exploratorium in your classroom, or even in your living room. Delicious, nutritious, and absolutely zero calories. Bon appétit!"
—K.C. Cole, PhD, Professor at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Southern California, Author, Something Incredibly Wonderful Happens: Frank Oppenheimer and the World He Made Up
