Summary
This DIY and environmentally friendly science book features more than 70 activities that give kids an amazing, science-tastic experience.

Hey, science can be cool--who doesn't want to grow their initials in crystal, or discover what carnivorous plants eat? The current DIY craze has created a generation of kids eager to make simple but rad machines and write in homemade invisible ink, while renewed environmental concern has kids building houses for bats and mixing up seed paper. This book features more than 70 activities that speak to both these trends, giving kids an amazing, science-tastic experience that's far from boring.
Explore Your World! is divided into two chapters: one of zany, quirky science projects and tech crafts, and another of eye-opening explorations that make every child's backyard seem like a haven for discovery. In the first chapter, kids experiment with electricity, magically squeeze an egg into a bottle, isolate their own DNA, make an eclipse-viewer, and have fun with optical illusions. In the second chapter, readers will learn how to collect water from a tree branch, recognize animal tracks, raise a butterfly, and make cool fossils.
This stealth-educational title gives kids the chance to learn and grow, without making them feel like they're stuck in class.
