As a librarian who programs for youth and teens, I found this book to be a great resource for STEAM projects. Many of the projects were unique and would suit a wide variety of ages. I especially liked the paintball splatter activity and the cake baking experiments. The instructions were clear and concise. The photos are bright and inviting.

This will be a hit with all ages!

One of the best science activity books I have seen. It has everything from simple to a bit more advanced, and gives so many creative artistic projects as well that help teach science concepts. It starts off giving an introduction, items needed, and important definitions of key concepts that will be used. The book covers Energy & Motion, Electricity & Magnetism, Living Science, Chemical Reactions, and Color & Light with such fun activities. It's hard not to list them all but some of our favorite activities were the spin art machine, spinning helicopter toy, monkey climbing toy, magnet pendulum painting, atom model mobile, aquaponic fish tanks, neuron blow paintings, homemade exploding paintballs, coloring mixing bath bombs, radial chromatography, nebula paintings, and more. I highly recommend this for the science and art lover.

I appreciated the clear instructions and accompanying pictures! The activities are equal parts art and science, which is a valuable combination. For science-loving kids, this can be how they connect to their creative side. For artistic kids, this can be how they discover they are also good at science. I loved it, and will certainly be recommending for my library to purchase.

This book has some lovely activities to make with kids, it is a great source of ideas to make family time rewarding and fun for all involved! I'd guess 7 to early teens would be the target demographic.

It is divided into sections, and generally the materials needed for each activity are basic, 'likely to have at home already' type of stuff!

The book is divided into 5 sections, each exploring a different theme, 'colour and light' being a personal favourite!

I really enjoyed this book and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

My thanks to Netgalley, author and publisher for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an advance copy.

What a fabulous book this is! Who says art and science can't go together! What a fun way for kids (and adult to learn about various science concepts!
The book is separated into five chapter, each cover projects to do to cover some aspect of science. They are Energy and Motion, Electricity and Magnetism, Living Science, Chemical and Reaction, and lastly Cold and Light.
The projects are really fun to do and they go a long way to explain why things happen - perfect for some one that has trouble grasping science. Some project require adult supervision and assistance, but all in all the book is really great fun - which will be used again and again.
Great instructions, photographs and presentation

Perfect book for indoor activities! There are so many different projects included that every child is bound to find something to try. I love that the instructions are clear and there are pictures to help along the way. Great book for any child so there are no more boring days!
