A hands-on science book packed with fun experiments from Carmelo the Science Fellow.
Designed to encourage kids’ natural love of science from an early age, this book promotes scientific observation, exploration, and analysis in a way that little kids can get excited about–through do-it-yourself experiments. Each chapter introduces a different branch of science, including biology, chemistry, and physics through kid-friendly experiments–all of which are linked to science curriculum requirements for grades K through 3.
Each experiment includes an introductory question, complete materials list, step-by-step instructions, and Carmelo’s characteristic kid-tested jokes–and is accompanied by full-color illustrations. The experiments utilize common materials typically found around the house. A little bit of help from a grown-up is recommended, and encourages family science time.
We love Carmelo’s Cosmic Cove and everyone who works there! The after school classes are fun and educational and summer camp was a blast for my kids. Carmelo is great with kids and is able to connect with and direct even very young children. We miss you, Carmelo, and your staff!
