    Become a Science of Fun Stuff Expert on baseball, amusement parks, magic, candy, snow, and airplanes with this amazing collection of six Science of Fun Stuff books! A special section at the back of each book extends the learning into other areas such as history, math, and geography, with a cool quiz at the very end to test your knowledge. And, best of all, the handle on this box set allows you to learn (and have fun!) on the go!


    Inside - Thrills and Chills of Amusement Parks

    Titles include:


    The Thrills and Chills of Amusement Parks

    Did you know that a roller coaster does not need an engine or power source of its own? Or that sugar has to be melted into a liquid to make cotton candy?


    The Innings and Outs of Baseball

    Did you know that ever time you watch a baseball game, you are watching some great examples of physics in action? Why exactly does the amount of spin on a pitch determine how far a ball can be hit? And what's the scientific reason that using pine tar on the bat makes it easier to grip?


    Pulling Back the Curtain on Magic!

    Did you know when a magician uses slight of hand, he is secretly tracking your eye movements at the same time? Or that a magician uses chemistry and physics to fool your brain to make many of his tricks work?


    The Cool Story Behind Snow

    Did you ever wonder what has to happen to make it snow? Or why snowflakes are like fingerprints and no two are exactly alike? And how do meteorologists predict a snowstorm?


    The Sugary Secrets Behind Candy

    Did you know that hard candy is technically a glass? Or that the same chemical that makes grapefruit taste sour is in sour-tasting candy?


    How Airplanes Get from Here... to There!

    Did you know that some aircraft are capable of traveling faster than the speed of sound? Or that the Wright brothers designed the first airplane after studying the wings of birds?
