Synopsis: These simple, fun experiments in magnetism and electricity will get kids all charged up. Test out a kitchen magnet and watch what it attracts; "light the light" with a fluorescent bulb and a piece of wool; "see" invisible magnetic fields and find the strongest part of the magnet; paste things together with static glue; make your TV screen snap, crackle, and pop; and transmit Morse code with a station you build yourself. Almost all the materials are easy to find in the house or inexpensive to buy, and each experiment has a section that explains the underlying scientific principles--plus, they're all safe. This collection is absolutely electrifying!
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-DiSpezio presents over 70 experiments that explore electrical charges, static electricity, currents, circuits, switches, and magnetism. Each one includes a brief introduction, a list of materials, directions, and a scientific explanation of the results. Thought-provoking questions for further investigation appear in a "Check It Out" section. The experiments are informative and, given the readily available parts and simple assembly, occasionally amazing. The author's entertaining comments make it clear that science can be fun. The black-and-white illustrations will assist students constructing buzzers, "anti-gravity disks," meters, and more. Safety reminders and suggestions for adult supervision are included. Overall, this book is similar in style and scope to Janice VanCleave's Electricity: Mind-Boggling Experiments You Can Turn into Science Fair Projects (Wiley, 1994). Budding scientists will enjoy and learn from these experiments.
