Curious people of all ages, teachers, and students will love this unique book.

With many hands-on experiments based on simple items such as balloons,

mirrors, and flashlights, a focus on creativity, perception, and innovation,this

open-ended book covers a wide range of topics, from everyday phenomena to

cutting-edge technology demonstrated in the kitchen.

In a recent editorial in Chemical and Engineering News, Dick Zare clearly

stated what our aspirations should be: ' give each student the opportunity to

explore and to pursue the answers to open-ended questions...Let's work harder

to avoid telling students too much about everything, and instead encourage

them to become independent thinkers.'

This book will help the reader to become that independent thinker.
