Per the author, "Fun as they are, these experiments serve a useful purpose in acquainting young and old with the world of science-and without any costly materials. The book is an ideal supplement to general science texts, and the 153 easily understood experiments can be performed in the classroom or at home under the supervision of teacher or parent...And it's safe. Under normal conditions and adequate supervision (any reliable grown person), not one of the experiments in Science Circus is dangerous. Each one meets three objectives: it teaches, it's fun and it's safe."« less
