Overview

As seen on "The Late Late Show with James Corden"

Supporting STEM education initiatives and the maker movement, the National Parenting Publication Award-winner Maker Lab includes 28 kid-safe projects and crafts that will get young inventors' wheels turning and make science pure fun.

Each step-by-step activity is appropriate for kids ages 8-12, and ranked easy, medium, or hard, with an estimated time frame for completion. Requiring only household materials, young makers can build an exploding volcano, race balloon rocket cars, construct a solar system, make a lemon battery, and more. Photographs and facts carefully detail the "why" and "how" of each experiment using real-world examples to provide context so kids can gain a deeper understanding of the scientific principles applied.

With a foreword by Jack Andraka, a teen award-winning inventor, Maker Lab will help kids find their inner inventor and create winning projects for school projects, science fairs, and beyond.

Written in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution, this book features more than two dozen hands-on experiments divided into four sections built around food, common household items, water, and the outdoors. Rated by difficulty level, the activities are clearly explained in both step-by-step instructions and accompanying color photographs. They include cooking marshmallows and baked Alaska, using tape and colored paper to make a double helix DNA model, creating a miniature ecosystem with a potted plant placed inside half of a plastic bottle; and making homemade bath fizzies using cream of tartar and baking soda. Fifteen-year-old Jack Andraka, who invented an early cancer detection test, contributes a foreword to this accessible and wide-ranging exploration of multiple aspects of the sciences. Ages 8–12. (July)
