Blue Ribbon Science Fair Projects : Author Glen Vechionne's collections of science fair projects have proven wildly popular. Kids really like the straight-up approaches and accessible experiments - and this volume is sure to help budding scientists win that prized blue ribbon, too. From finding out whether chewing gum improves memory to testing static electricity with a bowl of cereal, every idea is thoroughly enjoyable and educational. The engaging topics include fun with critters, where dog lovers can learn if Fido can hear music and see yellow; creative chemistry with soft drinks and milk; and lots of botany (including a look at whether honey can prevent mold). Plus, Vecchione provides great tips on how to catch the judges' attention, create a journal, and display the project.
