Review: Mason Jar Science

Are you looking for last-minute gifts for energetic middle-schoolers? Look no further than this fun-packed DIY guide to science experiments.

Mason Jar Science provides easy-to-follow instructions for hours of home-based holiday fun. All you will need is a mason jar, or two or three and your pantry is likely to provide the rest.

Imagine making unicorn poop, stalactite strings and bug vacuums without having to venture into a science lab.

Would you like to know how to turn an egg into a rubbery blob that shrinks and expands?

The super adventurous can have a crack at the "Take it Further" tips for even more extraordinary results.

One of my favourite activities is the gravity-powered water bubbler, which is an ancient Greek genius's invention that still works today.

Not only does Mason Jar Science make experimentation easy and safe, Jonathan Adolf's straightforward instructions give our scientists of the future the joy of exploring the "what if" in an atmosphere of fun.
