Summary

Fun and educational science experiments to teach and excite kids about physics, biology, chemistry, and more--from the #1 science author for kids!

What's even better than a practical joke? A super awesome science experiment that's fun! Your friends and family might be surprised at first ... until they realize they're learning about science too!

Each activity includes:

Step-by-step instructions Colorful illustrations and diagrams Additional notes and cool facts to explain the science!

Written by a quantum physicist and two science teachers, Pranklabshows kids how they can use everyday household items to learn the laws of physics, biology, and chemistry through entertaining (and perfectly safe) activities. With epic experiments like Fountain Dew, Hunger Explosion, Cheater's Dice, and Mind Control Elevator, kids will feel like they are playing and might not even notice they are learning about water pressure, chemical reactions, statistics, the power of groupthink, and so much more!

These awesome science experiments for kids will teach budding scientists that it's cool to be curious! There are a lot of science books for kids, but this is the book you need!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This diabolical set of extremely messy science pranks should delight kids. Twenty-five projects rate their degrees of mess, funniness, and danger, identify appropriate victims (Dad, sibling, math teacher), and include "Warnings for Future Me" (safety and clean-up tips, plus hints on how not to get grounded for life). There's also science: physics, chemistry, thermodynamics, probability, and some yucky biology. Scientific principles are woven into the irreverent step-by-step directions and commentary, and bright graphics fill the pages with humorous illustrations and colored boxes containing real-world correlations and trivia bits. Each activity ends with a prank review, where pranksters are encouraged to assess the effectiveness of their caper and review the associated science that made it possible. Some tricks are classics (exploding Mentos, magic coins); others are fiendish (sabotaged remotes, fake milk-spills on keyboards); most, with a little practice, can be pulled off independently by determined perpetrators. This is a fun twist on standard science-fair manuals, and will enhance STEM collections. Just make sure to have plenty of paper towels on hand."
