Default Science book 8+

We purchased a book called Science by Miles Kelly, its recommended for Age 8+. (From TK Maxx for 4.99)

It cover Materials & Chemicals, Energy Force & Motion, Electricity & Magnetism, Frontiers of Science and Technology.

It has 2 posters one of a timeline of discovery, the other showing how science can help to save the planet.

It also has Hands-On Science step-by-step experiment cards inside, that cover Acid Colours, Rainbow Water, Swelling Gases, Jewel Factory and Jet Powered Car.

It has been very useful and good fun!

Sensations science centre in Dundee was always our favourite. Maybe it was coincidence, but whenever we visited there was loads of hands on things to do, suitable for tots to grandparents. And very interesting they were too! I know others love Dynamic Earth, but for me there's a bit too much floor wobbling and ceiling spinning. If I ever go back, I'll take motion sickness pills first!
