Start the taps flowing and get ready for fun as your bathtub becomes a laboratory for inquisitive and adventurous kids!

Ever wondered how to make your own hydroplane that zips across the water? Want to blast yourself clean with a powerful water cannon? Look underwater with a homemade periscope? Transform your bathroom into a workshop where you can conduct mind-blowing experiments, learn scientific principles, and wow your friends by explaining the science behind these and many other fantastic experiments.

Designed by the acclaimed authors of several science books for kids, each experiment provides a list of the household materials you will need, clear, step-by-step instructions for conducting experiments, questions to guide your observations and an explanation of what you see.

In the enhanced ebook, children and their parents can watch great interactive videos that accompany each experiment, listen to amazing audio, and be inspired to become science geeks along the way.
