Raymond E. Barrett's Build-It-Yourself Science Laboratory is a
classic book that took on an audacious task: to show young
readers in the 1960s how to build a complete working science lab
for chemistry, biology, and physics--and how to perform
experiments with those tools. The experiments in this book are
fearless and bold by today's standards--any number of the
experiments might never be mentioned in a modern book for young
readers! Yet, many from previous generations fondly remember how
we as a society used to embrace scientific learning.
This new version of Barrett's book has been updated for today's world with annotations and updates from Windell Oskay of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, including extensive notes about modern safety practices, suggestions on where to find the parts you need, and tips for building upon Barrett's ideas with modern technology. With this book, you'll be ready to take on your own scientific explorations at school, work, or home.
