Description
An idea-packed catalog of projects, activities, and science fun sure to inspire future "Edisons" . The Thomas Edison Book of Easy and Incredible Experiments The Thomas Alva Edison Foundation Thomas Edison patented 1,093 inventions -- and more chemistry experiments than any other scientist ever! This book reflects the fascination that he found in experimentation and presents the best, most popular experiments and projects sponsored by the prestigious Edison Foundation. Here, in one convenient volume, you will find a range of activities from the very simple (for primary or middle grades or individual young scientists at home) to the intriguingly complex (for older students, groups, or an entire class). These experiments require no science background. They utilize inexpensive, easy-to-obtain materials. Most of all, the projects are fun to build, safe and useful, and each provides a good demonstration of important scientific principles in real-life action! Most youngsters and teens can work on the experiments with little supervision, and there are ample ideas for science fairs and "extra credit" projects. Over 100 illustrations are included, plus photos of the legendary inventor himself. Experiments in this book encompass magnetism, electricity, electrochemistry, chemistry, physics, energy, and environmental studies -- topics for varied interests in grades 4 through 11. Throughout, emphasis is on the essence of scientific "tinkering," experimenting for the pure fun of it . activities that lead to satisfying hobbies, new ideas, and learning. Edison himself would surely enjoy this book -- so imagine that you are visiting his laboratory, and let this be your introduction to a world of discovery. .
