A strange, creepy, and sometimes gross collection of science facts and activities that kids will love Want to get kids interested in science? Let them make their own slime, feed insects to plants, or learn about strange animals and bizarre phenomena. That's the philosophy behind Weird Science, which gives kids 40 activities on such scientific oddities as non-Newtonian fluids, strangler figs, ball lightning, and naked mole rats. In addition, the book includes "Weird Science in Action" sidebars of bizarre science facts, tips on how to turn an experiment into a science fair project, and lots of illustrations.
