Making science fun is what "Be a Kid Physicist" is all about. By getting them actively involved in the study of science at an early age, this book helps children better understand how scientific principles relate to and affect their daily lives. Here, Wellnitz has compiled a set of easy physics experiments that every child should love. The text shows how they can demonstrate static electricity with balloons, use sound to blow out a candle, perform the disappearing pencil trick and transfer heat from one object to another. Most of the activities can be completed in less than half an hour and require only common household items.
