Reviews

National Science Teachers Association Recommends "Explore Electricity! is written for an elementary age level, but middle school students would enjoy learning about historical background on electricity while completing the electricity projects. The contents of this book will captivate students with the electrifying topics... This book is a well--written resource for classroom teachers, students, and parents." Booklist "With a heavy emphasis on STEM and engaging trivia, this well-designed title is a quality introduction to the basics of electricity. Van Vleet puts humankind's fascination with electricity in historical context and briefly discusses our dependency on electrical energy. Circuits, electromagnetism, batteries, and lightning are all topics explored in informational text with embedded experimental projects..." Bookloons "Both home schooling families and teachers will find this book a handy aid when it comes to teaching a youngster about electricity." Dr. Karen Panetta, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Tufts University "Power, energy and electronics dominate our lives, yet very few people understand how electricity works or the exciting opportunities waiting out there for future electrical engineers to conquer. These fun, low-cost projects are a great way to engage your entire family to learn about and appreciate the great innovations electricity has brought to our lives." Marla Conn, educational consultant "Explore Electricity! gives students the opportunity to learn about electricity and its impact on society--past, present, and future. Will make a perfect supplemental text for the STEM program grades 4--8." Troy McBride, Chief Technology Officer, SustainX, Inc. & Norwich Technologies, Inc. "This is the kind of book that we need--hands-on science and technology written for children."
