By the Exploratorium
You can't learn to swim without getting in the water, and you can't really understand science just by reading facts. Through experiments, observations, and explanations, Exploratopia shows kids how to explore the world around them, how to ask questions, and how to experiment to find the answers. For children eight years and older, this book is filled with more than 400 activities using simple, readily available materials, making it ideal for families, homeschoolers, and teachers on a budget. Representing 25 years of Exploratorium activities and knowledge, Exploratopia will serve as a source of information for school reports, inspiration for science fair projects, and ideas for fun science activities everywhere a young explorer might be. Softcover, 384 pages.
