Learn about physics with fun projects and experimentsCreated in partnership with Thames & Kosmos, Fun Physics Projects for Tomorrow's Rocket Scientists introduces you to essential physics concepts through do-it-yourself projects that you can then use to perform experiments. Experience the thrill of scientific discovery when you observe the physics of motion, including constant speed, acceleration, and free fall, through your own experiments. All of the projects use inexpensive, readily available materials and software. No experience required!

Chapters feature:

Things You'll Need--lists of all the components and equipment required for each project
Be Careful--important safety tips
Famous Scientists--introductions to people who've made significant contributions to our understanding of physics
Online Videos--link to the author's demonstrations of the projects

Step-by-step projects include:

Constant-speed vehicle
Uniform acceleration fan car
Tennis ball cannon to investigate speed and study free fall
Trebuchet for observing the force of weight
Projectile-motion catapult
Water rocket to demonstrate Newton's Laws of Motion
Mousetrap-powered car that displays energy transformations
Model rocket engine to calculate momentum and impulse
Rocket launch ignition system and launch pad
Cool model rockets that demonstrate acceleration,speed, and altitude
