We have a few new books in the store and they are mostly great books on how to do science projects on your own. Let’s start with Soda-Pop Rockets
Now of course the book is title ‘Soda-Pop Rockets’ so naturally they show a Water Cooler bottle being launched on the cover! But honestly the majority of the book does deal with using common soda bottles as water rockets. The books shows how to build a simple (and later more complex) rocket & launcher, with an old bike inner tube, a wire coat hanger, a bike pump and some tools. From there more advanced subjects like adding find, stacking bottles, parachute systems and more are covered. Other subjects covered are how to measure how high the rocket flies, and launching toy cars with rockets! This is a great book for the basics of water rocketry.
From water we go to the next books which covers (ta-da!) fire! The Practical Pyromaniac is the book for those fascinated by flame!
This is the book for people interested in safely experimenting with fire. Details are given on how to make a flame tube, candle-powered engines, and even make huge fireballs. All of the experiments are given in strong detail with an emphasis on safety (but still having fun and making cool fire effects!).
These books are great for folks who want the ‘old school’ do-it-yourself science experiments, pick up some copies today!
