“Adrian Dingle made his name with a book for kids about the periodic table. In this new book, he deals with the whole of chemistry in a clear and exciting way. What makes chemistry so distinctive is all the wonderful experiments that can be carried out. Dingle is able to bring out the excitement of chemistry to the age group where it matters the most. Explanations are accurate and clear, and the photos and illustrations admirably support the text. I recommend it highly.” —Dr. Eric Scerri, UCLA chemist and author of The Periodic Table, Its Story and Its Significance

“Adrian Dingle has offered simple, direct experiments that can be done at home with young kids but also can be used in a high school introductory classroom as an engaging activity to activate learning. What makes this book more valuable than a simple ‘recipe’ book is the connection to real chemistry concepts. In The Hows and Whys section of each experiment, Dingle presents accessible chemical concepts in an easy-to-understand style that, again, will work for youngsters as well as older students. Additionally, experiments contain an additional STEAM Connection box where Dingle connects the chemistry to the observable world. If your kids love science, they will love performing the 40 experiments in this book!” —Eric Pantano, high school chemistry teacher

Awesome Chemistry Experiments for Kids provides 40 activities that students can do (sometimes with the help of an adult) to learn chemistry concepts using household items or materials that can be easily obtained. This is a valuable resource for anyone trying to teach chemistry to young learners, and by using common materials in all the experiments, Adrian Dingle’s book can help make abstract chemistry concepts relatable to students in any learning environment.” —Christian Canfield, high school chemistry teacher
