Experiment with Outdoor Science: Fun projects to try at home

Experiment with Outdoor Science is an accessible science-based STE(A)M experiment collection aimed at younger readers. Due out 17th March 2020 from Quarto on their QEB imprint, it's 80 pages and will be available in hardcover format.

These are 30 very simple experiments using easily sourced materials, which are generally safe and illustrative. A short introductory chapter is followed by experiments grouped roughly by discipline: kinetics/movement, physical chemistry/mixtures, plant science, zoology, sky & space. The experiments are easy to follow and safe. Safety tips are highlighted with a red triangle and an exclamation point in a sidebar. Tips and tricks are also included in sidebars. Measurements are provided in the instructions in American standard and metric.

Each of the experiments includes tools and supplies list in a sidebar along with step by step instructions. There are tutorial photos as well as line drawn diagrams and pictures for each of the activities along with some very simple explanations of the theory.  The book also includes a glossary and index.

Four stars.
