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.
Get the whole family joining in around the table, as you transform your kitchen into a laboratory!
‘Alom Shaha is gentle and persuasive, the type of teacher you would have loved to have had educate you.’
‘A charming, accessible way to introduce children to the wonders of scientific research. Every experiment is simple, yet there’s no skimming over the hard facts. I wish I’d had a book like this when I was growing up. I’ll certainly be working my way through it with my son.’
—Angela Saini, mother and author of Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong
