Bring Science Home: Set 3
Can you cook a pizza using just the power of the sun? Can biodiversity be measured in your backyard? Is there science in art and music? Science can answer so many questions! In this continuing series presented by Scientific American, readers discover the answers to these questions and many more as they explore the science of STEAM, the environment, animals, plants, and even while making dessert! Each experiment or activity begins with an explanation of the scientific concept the project will explore. The following step-by-step instructions guide young scientists through the project and help them draw scientific conclusions from their results.
• Materials are often easily gathered from around the home or classroom
• Many projects are marked for use in a science fair and include further experimentation ideas
• STEM concepts tie into middle school science curricula
• A concluding section describes the scientific method in detail
