Books, Manuscripts
A hands-on science book packed with fun experiments from rockstar science educator Carmelo the Science Fellow! Designed to encourage kids' natural love of science from an early age, this book promotes scientific observation, exploration, and analysis in a way that little kids can get excited about--through do-it-yourself experiments! Each chapter introduces a different branch of science, including biology, chemistry, and physics through kid-friendly experiments--all of which are linked to science curriculum requirements for grades K through 3. Each experiment includes an introductory question, complete materials list, step-by-step instructions, and Carmelo's characteristic kid-tested jokes--and is accompanied by full-color illustrations. The experiments utilize common materials typically found around the house. A little bit of help from a grown-up is recommended, and encourages family science time. "With his exuberant personality, emphasizing humor above all, Mr. Piazza has earned the reputation as the archetypal cool teacher among the younger set."--"The New York Times" "Since getting tons of buzz for his goofball approach to science, Boerum Hill resident Carmelo Piazza has seen demand for his summer camps, kids' classes and birthday parties soar."--"Time Out Kids NY"
