I really enjoyed this book and all the experiments it had. I would like to try to have a day in my own classroom where all the students would try some experiments on their own. I think this book is perfect for that kind of situation. They are easy, simple, and most can all be done in a classroom. I really think my students would enjoy this book and what it contains.

It really is science in seconds. Simple demonstrations of basic principles. They could be used individually, spontaneously, or several together, and still be effective.
