Product Details


Amazing Science has a lot of really cool and simple hands-on experiments that do an excellent job of making science fun. And it is perfect for groups and classrooms, too. Every family with young kids should have this book!”
—Sidney R. Hemming, PhD., Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University; 2021 Guggenheim Fellow

“Exciting young minds with cool science ideas spark creativity and even nurture problem-solving skills. This is powerful stuff and this book delivers that in spades.”
—Dr. Harvey Karp, Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics; CEO of Happiest Baby

“The team at Good Housekeeping has found a nice balance of science content and fun activities in a colorful and approachable format. In addition to general science concepts, they also include real-life connections and useful charts for experimenting. From simple circuits to soap bubbles and solar smores, this guide will have parents and their kids exploring hands-on science on many rainy (and not rainy!) afternoons.”
—Bob ”Science Bob” Pflugfelder, teacher, maker, presenter, and author of Nick and Tesla science adventure series

“I wish I had this book when I was growing up or at least when my girls were growing up. The fun, easy-to-do experiments lower the barrier to science, and will get kids excited about science and engineering.” 
—Vijay Kumar, Dean of Penn Engineering, University of Pennsylvania

“This book provides easy-to-follow, clear, and repeatable simple science experiments in the categories of physics, biology and chemistry….the experiments are easy to follow, straight-forward in their explanation and set up, and provide ample opportunities to dive deeper into the topic should you choose to do so….Thank you to all the researchers and writers in this book for making the lesson-planning aspect of hands-on activities easier and more consistent!”
—Jesse Kasehagen, 7th grade science teacher, Santa Barbara Middle School

 “…incredibly engaging….Readers will turn their kitchens into laboratories to practice the scientific method, collect data, test hypotheses, and have so much fun getting their hands messy as they explore food science, water, energy, motion, games, slime, grime, and the great outdoors…. Amazing Science is fun for parents and kids alike, who will all appreciate learning and enjoying time together along the way.”
— Booklist, starred review

“As an educator with decades of experience working with children, I know this smart, fun guide will reward the insatiable curiosity of young kids who want to better understand how things work in the world—and why….And parents, you will appreciate that each experiment features difficulty ratings; time involved; and yes, a mess-o-meter…the author, along with the nine women scientists, engineers and product analysts at the Good Housekeeping Institute who contributed to this wonderful book, deserve a standing ovation: they have shown the young that nothing beats the world they inhabit, inside and out, for true enjoyment and learning.”
—Maureen Murphy, Head of School, The Children’s School, Stamford, CT
