A vibrant and hands-on approach to practical science experiments. Discover It Yourself: Solids and Liquids is packed with scientific facts, experiments, and activities linked to liquids and solids. Keen scientists can discover the difference between man-made and natural materials, how chemical reactions occur and why reusing and recycling is so important. After learning the essential facts, readers can find almost everything they need for the experiments around the home, and the materials and instructions are simply, safely, and clearly presented. Written by David Glover, this STEM-focused book will show readers how to make a whizzing chemical-powered rocket, build a rubber roadster, cook up some plastic, and much more.
