Liz Heinecke has loved science since she was old enough to inspect her first butterfly. Now she's on a mission to make it safe, fun and easy for kids of all ages to play with science.
After working in molecular biology research for ten years and getting her master’s degree, Liz left the lab to kick off a new chapter in her life as a stay-at-home mom. Soon she found herself sharing her love of science with her three kids as they grew, journaling their science adventures on her KitchenPantryScientist website.
Her desire to spread her enthusiasm for science to others soon led to regular TV appearances, the creation of the KidScienceapp iPhone app, and her two books, Kitchen Science Lab for Kids and Outdoor Science Lab for Kids.
You can find her at home in Minnesota, wrangling her kids, writing, singing, playing banjo, painting, running, and doing almost anything else to avoid housework.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- The ideas are great but for most kids in diffrent areas some of these projects will not be able to work well. It was a very interesting book and would be great for homeschool science projects.
