One of the best things about science class is when you get to do the fun experiments. You know which ones we’re talking about—the ones where things may get a little messy. That’s why when we saw The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science: 50 Experiments for Daring Young Scientists, we knew we had to offer it in our Book Clubs because what student, or anyone interested in science for that matter, wouldn’t want to try out the awesome experiments inside? What’s really great about this book is that it goes into the history and science behind each experiment so you can really learn how and why each experiment is important. From making your own X-ray machine to making a soda bottle rocket based on Robert Goddard’s experiment, there is something that is awesome and daring for all young budding scientists.
In fact, we were so excited about this book that we had to try an experiment out for ourselves. Check out Experiment #34: Robert Goddard’s Soda Bottle Rocket.
