Experiment with Engineering Science
with 30 Fun Projects!
by Nick Arnold

I received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a great book for kids who love science or even for kids of parents who would like for them to more interested in science. I read this with my 5.5 and 9 year old boys. Great infographics. Full color photo examples of experiments that can be done with every day items found at home. 

Excellent kids stem book. 5/5

This book, like Experiment with Kitchen Science, has so many projects for kids to do with items that most people already have. The instructions are clear and the different activities provide lots of hands on learning at home. Great way for kids and parents to spend time together. Thank you #netgalley for giving me a copy of this book.

Simple but a bit old for my kids. Some really cute ideas, good experience for a kid, easy to understand concepts.

Thank you NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this advanced reader copy. This is my own volunteered review. 

This book really hit home with me being a Civil Engineer and wanting to share STEM learning activities with them. This book did not disappoint! There are great activities for all kinds of engineering, from structures to chemistry. Something this book does really well compared to some other kid science books, is that 90% of the materials shown are everyday items that you have on hand. This fantastic as we can easily got thru these activities without having to go to the store for any of the items. I also loved that it uses items that otherwise would be garbage, like milk cartons. They are reused and repurposed. 

The activities will need some parent assistance to set some of them up. However they are easy enough that small hands could easily help on some steps. The concepts are also easy enough for young minds to understand cause and effect. 

5 stars I'd high recommend for kids of all ages, great activities to change up the day or keep kids busy on a rainy day.

This is an excellent purchase for an elementary classroom. There were good activities that would be easy to do in a classroom. The activities also come with a scientific explanation. I highly recommend this book,

This very interesting book by Nick Arnold is one of two that are being released at the same time about science.  This one is about engineering.  Like his cooking science book, this one is also very well organized with chapters about different scientific principles based around engineering.  There are chapters about building, mechanics, and energy.  Each chapter has several different activities that are engaging and fun.  Each activity is clearly explained with specific directions and lists of materials.  The images will help young scientists follow the directions.  I think kids and teachers are going to love this book!

Hands - on science, "Whoo-hoo!"  Kids, kids, kids, this is gonna be FUN!   Learning experiences await.  You will get a feel for how bridges stay up when gravity is desparately trying to pull them down; explore pulley power; rocket launch and even build your own car, among a number of other compelling engineering experiences.   The messier the better.  There are mini blurbs but not boring ones, to help you understand the science of it all.  There are step-by-step instructions with helpful diagrams and pictures to guide you.  Experiments can be put together at minimal cost as most materials needed to create with you'll be able to find around your home, perhaps even from recyclable items.  Happy Experimenting!

Nice pictures and clear instructions.  Good activities for upper elementary students.  Supplies for the projects can easily be found around the home.

This book has a variety of STEM building challenges that children can replicate with household and recyclable materials. Along with clear photographs are step by step directions as well as explanations of the scientific ideas behind the experiments and activities. I could definitely see my Grade 3 students interested in this book and excited to create some of the structures they see in the book. I could also see this being used as a resource for teachers or parents wanting to help teach scientific and engineering ideas to young children. I would recommend this book to parents and teachers of children in the 5-11 age range. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!

Thank you Netgalley and Quarto Publishing for providing my copy.

Such a treasure book with exciting projects. This book make science experiment kid get from school become extra interesting and appealing.
Points I like the most is easy step by step and materials we can found easily. That's make me believe this books is doable by younger primary school too.

Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to receive an arc in exchange for my honest review- all thoughts and opinions are my own.


10/10 recommend! This was such a fun put together book, with fun engaging science projects that are easy to be created with everyday household stuff. 
Listen, I’m not a crafty person- but I had almost every item needed for the majority of these projects. Like, 18/20 of them. 
I’m a homeschool mom to a 2nd and 4th grader, and science isn’t my big forte. This was easy enough for me to feel confident in the science experiments while not feeling burned out- easy enough for both kids to handle the majority, and i even purchased a physical copy so we can continue to do these!

Looks like an interesting compilation of experiments. Hope to actually get to read it at some point. Neither one of my pdf readers recognize this file format. Will have to convert it to a recognizable format. I really, really don't like pdf books. They can be rather difficult to deal with. Wish it was a format recognized by Kindle.

What a great book! Lots of fun experiments for children to do. No specialist equipment so it can be used at home (or the garden for those messier experiments) but it is also something which would make a great teaching resource.

I defy any child not to be engaged and excited by the challenges of this book - a fabulous way to entertain and educate!

The experiments are broken down into small steps which are clearly explained with images to help. Very accessible with simple language. Definitely recommended.
