Blast off with Newton's laws of motion and prepare to excel in physics! develop a fundamental understanding of inertia, the laws of motion, centripetal force, mass, weight, velocity and acceleration with the Science Wiz physics kit. Launch bottle rockets, perform tricks with inertia, stay in motion with a floating hover puck, zoom a jet car, build your own spring meter, spin water upside down, assemble and use a balance scale, clock a race and accelerate, and measure mass - all in with one kit. Wow! concepts are covered with time tested experiments and the kit includes a balance scale for measuring mass, a stopwatch accurate to 1/100 of a second to clock speed and a jet car that really zooms. Step-by-step, highly visual instructions lead a child successfully through each of the 24 activities. The full color illustrations present central scientific concepts which allow children to discover the "why" as well as the "how" of these great projects and the use of everyday materials demystifies the workings of common electronic components. Bring the fun and learning further by utilizing the animations that compliment the book on the Science Wiz website to deepen and extend comprehension. The award winning Science Wiz line got its start in 1995 when we released our first title Science Wiz electricity. Our line of science kits stemmed from Dr. Penny Norman's volunteer work teaching science in her children's elementary schools and her Science Wiz after school and summer programs. With initial development supported by grants from the National science foundation and the Franklin foundation, each of our kits is created with the goal of teaching fundamental scientific concepts to children through hands-on play. From our offices in El sobrante, CA we work hard towards our goal of providing children a basic foundation in science. Each new title we release is focused on a distinct topic. With so many disciplines in science, our work may never be finished!
