Experimenting with different things is fun for children of all ages. Balancing acts with a couple of forks and a coin or trying to make objects that obviously don’t float to still stay above the surface somehow.
These are some examples of hundreds of experiments described in our feature Try This.
With simple descriptions, first-rate illustrations and just the right amount of text, this is the perfect way to spend a rainy day, have fun and learn.
Most of the things required for these experiments can be found in each kitchen, garage or bathroom. A couple of forks, some nails and liquid soap and you are set to go.
