This is a bumper collection of simple experiments and projects that explain a wide range of scientific facts and principles, and how technical things work. The instructions and step-by-step photographs are easy to follow, the materials used are inexpensive and easy to find, making the projects easy to do at home or in the classroom. All the experiments have and important scientific learning point, but they are fun to do and make science delightfully accessible. The projects are arranged thematically to reflect different areas of science and technology, such as earth sciences, transport, or modern technology. The introduction to each thematic section sets the scene for the experiments that follow.
