Students - have you ever watched a person have a blast with a project of their own making? Well, this summer it's been loads of fun to witness our son Henry's experiments, many of which include baking soda and vinegar. He's sent all sorts of things flying across our yard, and so far all people and pets are safe (though our one-eyed Mini cat did look a bit nervous this afternoon.) I wrote this poem from my own pleasure of watching Hen have such a super time exploring science.
Are you looking for summer projects which could be more exciting than world travel? If yes, don't miss this book, Henry's recent inspiration and go-to manual. It is full of directions for everything from a "Frankenstein's Hand" to "Dancing Mothballs."
If you're on the hunt for a good gift, consider this book along with a gallon of vinegar and a large box of baking soda!
