Science isn't dry and boring -- it's oozing with curiosity, dripping with fun and exploding with imagination! Filled with cool, crazy and downright gross science experiments to try at home, kids can find out first-hand how to make two different types of gloopy slime, take the shell off a raw egg without breaking it, grow soap to twice its size and much more. Experiments are alternated with single-page factual entries about crazy and gross science in the real world. Astonishing photos and delightfully gross illustrations fill this collection of simple-yet-wacky science experiments to try out at home. From gloopy slime to exploding volcanoes, this book is for budding scientists who aren't afraid to get their hands sticky or to sniff something stinky!
