Quality Dover publication, directed to grades 4-6.
With only a few inexpensive and readily available materials, plus clearly illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions, youngsters can safely carry out 20 famous experiments that provided a foundation for developments in today's highly sophisticated fields of electronic communications, space exploration and computer technology.
Learning becomes an entertaining experience as young experimenters magnetize amber, "get a charge" out of polyethylene and wool, make a compass, a battery and electromagnet and learn about pioneers in communication, AM and FM radio, as well as a variety of items ranging from semiconductors to solar cells. Clearly labeled line drawings, black-and-white photographs and prints of historical interest complete this enlightening chronological history of electrical experiments and discoveries.
