Explorabook has just fallen out-of-print. We have procured several USED copies of this book because it is essential to our History of Science study. These used copies are worn and do not have the attached magnet you would find with a new book. You can find a similar magnet at a hardware or craft store. We have reduced the price of this book to $14.95.
The aim was to take the San Francisco Exploratorium (the granddaddy of all hands-on science museums) and squeeze it between the covers of a book. Inside the book are “pages” that reflect, magnify or grow into ugly bacteria-infested messes if you spit into them (per the instructions). Seven subjects are covered, including light wave craziness, ouchless physics and hair dryer science. More than 50 activities, plus the tools to do nearly all of them. All you supply is the world around you, and a little curiosity about what makes it tick. Includes a light-ray defractor, heavy duty magnet, agar gel and much more. Certain to amuse and teach! Heavy-duty spiral binding will hold up to use.
