Grade 6-9-A collection of 46 activities, divided into eight subtopics: electromagnetic forces, static electricity, current flow, electromechanical devices and motors, resistance and capacitance, generating electricity, solid-state electronics, and radio-frequency energy. Adult supervision for all of the projects is recommended in the introduction. Each entry has a list of materials needed, procedures, and a brief "Something more..." section designed to guide readers toward developing a science-fair project. Some of the black-and-white illustrations help in the set up of equipment, but others are merely decorative. Although the authors recommend that students make a "schematic diagram" of their projects, a list of symbols for common electronic components appears only at the back of the book and the first example of a schematic diagram is on page 46. No bibliography, list of suggested reading, or sources of materials is given. All of these projects are straightforward demonstrations and are not in themselves suitable for science-fair projects. The book will be most useful to students and teachers seeking hands-on projects to explore electricity and electronics. Robert Gardner's Science Projects About Electricity & Magnets (Enslow, 1994) covers similar ground and offers more challenging projects for middle-grade students interested in developing science-fair projects.

Students will impress teachers, classmates, and science fair judges with more than 40 fantastic projects that explore electromagnetic forces, static electricity, current flow, motors, resistance and capacitance, generating electricity, solid state electronics, and radio frequency energy. Designed with safety in mind, most of the projects can be completed with items found around the house or at the local electronics store. Science Fair Projects With Electricity And Electronics is further enhanced by the provision of "What If" questions following each project which explore all kinds of variations. Science Fair Projects With Electricity And Electronics is perfect for home schooling activities as well. -- Midwest Book Review
