Physics Fun and Beyond BY Eduardo Valadares
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: '...to 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.
