9781844680979: Schoolboy Science Remembered

A fantastic foray into the world of school day science which involve turning household goods into exciting but informative experiments. Dr Keith Souter explores the science behind these simple but fun experiments and how by understanding how they work, we can explain the world around us, from the position of the Harvest Moon to the composition and osmosis of food and drink.

Discover how to make your own kaleidoscope, crystals and even a steam turbine from an old cocoa tin – and why you’ll never want to compost a floppy potato again. A must-buy book for everyone interested in what happens when and why. The Theory of Everything is contained in these fact-filled pages.

Not those days when you hadto do those dreadful tests, or when your science teacher demonstrated yet another experiment that failed abysmally and the chemicals turned the wrong colour. Rather, those days when you learned about some amazing principle and felt stimulated to go home and try it out yourself. And when you did, do you recall that Eureka moment?This book takes you on a voyage of scientific re-discovery. From the kitchen laboratory to the bathroom test site you will be able to do experiments galore, investigate the mystery of the pyramid, find things out about your body and make things fizz. If you want to reexperience those Eureka moments, then this book is for youDid you know? That Tycho Brahe, the great Renaissance scientist had an artificial silver nose and was assisted in his experiments by his court jester That you can make a battery from a stack of coins, blotting paper, silver foil and some salt and vinegar That an ancient Greek inventor, Hero of Alexandria invented a steam machine 1,700 years before James Watt built his steam engine That you can make a crystal set radio from a toilet tube, copper wire, a pencil, a safety pin, a few drawing pins and paper clips, and an old razor bladeWell, you can find out hereKEITH SOUTER is a part time doctor, medical writer and novelist.

This all started in his early school days when he learned that his chemistry teacher had no intention of showing him how to make stink bombs.He is now happily married with three grown-up children, all of whom somehow survived his impromptu experiments. Apart from his passion for science and medicine he is interested in history, sport and fiction. In his spare time he writes novels under his own name and a couple of pseudonyms.
