Inspire the scientists of the future with this collection of 28 hands-on projects for kids. * BBC Focus *
Packed with 28 brilliant experiments for any budding scientists, using clear step-by-step instructions, everyday ingredients and amazing photography. * Primary Times *
The step-by-step instructions and photographs are beautifully clear and really appealing; we couldn't wait to get started! * TheSchoolRun.co.uk *
Home Lab is a good example of science not just being a theoretical study, but it's actually for kids to get their hands stuck in, ask questions and find out what's going on. There are wonderful experiments in this which I've done with the school children I work with and they've really enjoyed them. I think it's very important to show that science isn't just done in a laboratory, it isn't just studied at university - actually you can do it yourself with simple materials. The book has very easy to follow instructions, even for somebody like me, even I can do them. It's interactive and I think it's important to have that element in the shortlist. -- Martin Chilton, Judge of the Royal Society Young People's Science Book Prize
