The Gadgets & Gizmos books feature water rockets, Drinking Birds, Dropper Poppers, Boomwhackers, and more. The experiments let students explore phenomena involving pressure and force, thermodynamics, light and color, resonance, buoyancy, and more.
The phenomenon-based learning (PBL) approach is as educational as the demonstrations are attention-grabbing. PBL encourages students to first experience how gadgets work and then grow curious enough to find out why. The result: Your students learn physics by doing what scientists do.
