These are my ‘recipes for wonder‘, filled with ideas and instructions to turn anyone into a wondersmith – a grown-up who can foster wonder in both senses of the word, by encouraging children to feel amazement and admiration for the natural world, as well as to ask questions to learn more about it.
Why does the …? What is …? How does …? Don’t worry if you don’t know the answers, you soon will!
Every child can be a scientist with the help of Mr Shaha and his recipes for wonder!
Turn a rainy day at home or a walk in the park into a chance to experiment. All you need are a few simple items from your kitchen cupboards — and the power of curiosity!
Learn about sound by making wine glasses sing, investigate chemical reactions with vitamin-powered rockets, and explore Newton’s Third Law by making balloon-driven cars.
Written by a science teacher and dad, Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder gives clear, step-by-step instructions for over 15 experiments. Whether you’re a science star or just starting out, it will help you inspire young people to learn.
