Build devices with your own hands and use software to measure and quantify your findings. Suitable for classroom use, home study, science fairs, Scouting projects, or just having fun, the book features a variety of simple physics projects covering speed, weight, motion, projectiles, kinetic energy, collisions, liquids, heat, sound, refraction, electricity, and much more. All projects can all be built with easy-to-find materials. You'll get tips for setting up your own home workbench, safely handling materials, operating your finished devices, and using the skills you acquire from the book's projects for further experimentation and exploration. A fun and engaging introduction to physics The projects and activities in the book cover a wide range of physics topics Reader-friendly--ideal for younger hobbyists or anyone looking for an introduction to physics A great self-teaching guide that's also an excellent supplement for home schooling or tutoring."@en ;
