Synopsis: Snack on science! Make a science of snacks! Potato Chip Science is the book and kit that’s an irresistible introduction to science for 8- to 12-year-olds. Here are 29 incredible experiments—plus one edible project—that use potato chips, potatoes, potato chip bags, tubes, and lids. Included in the bag are a 96-page two-color book and a dozen items that kids can use for the following “snacktivities”:

Bag Blaster - Bird Feeder - Chipmobile - Chip Analyzer - Chip-Ship Challenge - Chip-Tube Gobbler - “Color” Wheel - Compass - Composter - Confetti Can-non - CSI Detective Kit - Dancing Chips - Electric Wave - Flipper - Hydrofoil - Kissing Tubes - Kite - Mini Extermi-tater - Potato Bender - Potato Chip Crunchies - Potato Battery - Saucer Tosser - Shrunken (Potato) Head - Signal Mirror - Sound Spinner - Spud Crud - Spuddy Buddy - Walkie-Talkie - Windmill

Product Features:
-  96-page book providing step-by-step instructions
-  Bag that can be turned into a kite, compass, or “hydofoil”
-  Digital sound chip that plays “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” . . .   powered by a potato! (spud not included)
-  6-inch propulsion pipe that launches spud pellets 50 feet!
-  Recyclable base (makes a great Chipmobile chassis!)
-  6 optical stickers
-  6 chip lids (the wheels of the Chipmobile!)
-  Spud-powered digital clock (once again, potato not included)
-  4 zinc and copper electrodes
-  Googly eyes (Yeah!)
-  Wire connectors
-  Eco-friendly starch knife (to carve the Spuddy Buddy and Shrunken Potato Head)

About the Author: Allen Kurzweil is the author of Leon and the Champion Chip―the second in a series of young-reader novels―in which he first explored the idea of a science curriculum based on the potato chip. Mr. Kurzweil has also written two award-winning novels for adults, A Case of Curiosities and The Grand Complication. Currently a fellow at the John Nicholas Brown Center for the Study of American Civilization at Brown University, he lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with his wife and son, Max, his potato chip science collaborator and beta-tester.
