Prize-winning science fair projects for curious kids by Joe Rhatigan( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains ideas for cool science projects using items found around the house or at a nearby store. From thinking of a unique science fair experiment to putting fabulous finishing touches on the display, this cool collection of 50 smart and illustrated projects gives budding scientists everything they need to put together a winner-and have fun doing it, too. Kids have seen all the tricks, and they're tired of science fair books that show them (yawn) how to make the "been there, done that" volcano or a boring model of the solar system. Here are experiments they really want to do, on subjects such as slime, magic sand, video games, mummies, dog germs, horoscopes, bicycles, and more. The whole science fair experience is broken down into small, manageable steps, so youngsters won't feel overwhelmed. All safety precautions are taken, with notes on parental supervision, when necessary. The author lives in Asheville, NC
Smash it!, crash it!, launch it! : 50 mind-blowing, eye-popping science experiments by Rain Newcomb( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines some fun science experiments. Crash, boom, bang: destroy! There's nothing children love more than the satisfying smashing and bashing of things being demolished. They always do it for sheer amusement; now they can do it in the name of science. And they'll enjoy it so much that they won't even think they're learning physics as they're wrecking stuff. Just imagine the expression on kids' faces as they watch a microwaved marshmallow grow bigger ... and bigger: up to four times its size. Will it blow up? Think of the delight as they power cardboard racecars with ordinary balloons or launch homemade rockets. All the scientific terms are explained in language that children will both understand and appreciate--and the safety precautions make sure the science stays fun and worry-free

Conversations with Ron Rash by Mae Miller Claxton( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Efik and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the publication of Serena in 2008 earned him a nomination for the PEN/Faulkner fiction prize, Ron Rash (b. 1953) has gained attention as one of the South's finest writers. Rash draws upon his family's history in Appalachia, where most members have worked with their hands as farmers or millworkers. In the Grit Lit or Rough South genre, Rash maintains a prominent place as a skilled craftsman and triple threat, publishing four collections of poetry, six short story collections, and six novels. Though best known as an Appalachian writer, Rash's reach has grown to extend well beyond Appalachia and the American South, spreading to an international audience. Conversations with Ron Rash collects twenty-two interviews with the award-winning author and provides a look into Rash's writing career from his first collection of short stories, The Night the New Jesus Fell to Earth in 1994 through his 2015 novel, Above the Waterfall. The collection includes four interviews from outside the United States, two of which appear in English for the first time. Spanning sixteen years, these interviews demonstrate the disciplined writing process of an expert writer, Rash's views of literature on a local and a global scale, his profound respect for the craft of the written word, and his ongoing goal to connect with his readers."--
