Guidebooks: Science Experiments and Projects

Scientific inquiry, invention, experimentation, and discovery are all possible at quite sophisticated levels using ordinary materials found in every home or easily purchased online.

Parents without scientific degrees, however, will normally draw a blank stare at the thought of setting up and operating a "family lab" at home.

Fretting is unnecessary, however. By setting aside a dedicated science space in the home (even just a small table and bookcase in the family room), and using a few good books as guides, the task needn't be unduly burdensome.

To get things going, below are listed some great activity books for young scientists and their parents:




The Science Explorer

The Curious Kid's Science Book

Big Science for Little People

The 101 Coolest Simple Science Experiments

The Big Book of Makerspace Projects

Tinkerlab: A Hands-On Guide for Little Inventors

Electronics for Kids: Play with Simple Circuits and Experiment with Electricity!
