Is It Science?

Is It Science? (Set 1)


Magic or science? Toys or physics? Have you ever looked at an object or trick and wondered what the science behind it is?

In Magic or Science?, Magicians pull off fantastic feats: Levitating a meter above the ground, charming a snake with a flute, finding lost objects with the help of a pendulum, swallowing a sword or walking on embers ... But how do they do it? Is it magic or is it science? Learn to question and discover how science can explain most of the secrets surrounding these amazing wonders.

Get ready to move to the other side of the mirror!

Toys or Physics? will amaze young readers and spark their interest in physics. With full-colour illustrations and simple-to-read explanations, Toys or Physics? examines well-loved toys and games, and breaks down essential physics concepts through fun and play.
