Description

This is not your ordinary book of science experiments. Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes is a geek-chic look at Steve Spangler's latest collection of tricks and try-it-at-home activities that reveal the secrets of science in unexpected ways. What makes this book different from other science experiment books is the amazing photography. Over 200 color photographs and 37 videos accompany the step-by-step instructions and simple explanations to uncover the how-to and why for each activity. Make potatoes fly, cornstarch turn into quicksand, and 2-liter bottles of soda explode on command.

Author, celebrity teacher, and science guy Steve Spangler teaches you how to transform the ordinary into the amazing as you make everyday items ooze, bubble, fizz, and pop! Make people wonder… How did you do that? From Flying toilet paper to trash can smoke rings, erupting soda to exploding sandwich bags, the experiments in Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes will spark your imagination and totally impress your friends. Learn how to astound kids and kids-at-heart with easy and inexpensive experiments like these: Bubbling Lava Bottle, The Incredible Can Crusher, Nails for Breakfast, The Folding Egg, Quicksand Goo, Screaming Balloon, and Burning Money.

Steve Spangler, creator of scientific educational power-house SteveSpanglerScience.com, has earned his credentials as a science author, teacher, professional speaker, toy designer, and Emmy award-winning television personality. Whether he's whipping up a cool new science experiment for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, producing a new YouTube video, or designing a hands-on science lesson for kids, Steve is always seeking new ways to create unforgettable learning experiences. It's no wonder that thousands of people follow him on Twitter, join the conversation on Facebook, and spend countless hours watching hundreds of his YouTube videos.

Steve is currently based in Denver, but travels extensively, training teachers in ways to make learning more engaging and fun. His hands-on "boot camps" and summer institutes inspire and teach teachers how to prepare a new generation for an ever-changing work force.

    I am so glad that someone is out there fighting for the elementary aged audience. It is too late if students are not inspired at a young age. While I have done many of these experiments and demos with students, it was refreshing to get clear description about the science behind the activity. I loved how the book has been enhanced by the iPad platform. My only complaint is that the book could have been a lot longer.
  • Wonderful science book

    This enhanced iPad version with video is incredible. I love how the book focuses on experiments that can be done with stuff around the house or inexpensive materials. I plan on teaching science to Preschoolers and we do not have a big budget for new items, but the kids are going to have a blast with some of these experiments.

    My 5-yr old loves the enhanced videos and it encourages her to want to "make magic." My 15-yr old uses the book to select science class projects and refers to the text and videos to make sure she's doing it correctly. And while I'm not going to divulge *my* age in this forum, suffice it to say grown adults can enjoy this book, too. The "wow!" factor of many of the experiments is wonderful. I'd highly recommend this book!

    This book is nicely done with simple yet effective videos and explanations. It is perfect for those of us that have already done these experiments as well as the new individuals who are discovering them for the very first time. Well done!
  • This book is alive!
