Jessica Garrett presents Oh Ick!: 114 Science Experiments Guaranteed to Gross You Out!
Join us for an author reading, demo, and signing for Oh Ick! as part of the NC Science Festival!
About the book: From A to Z, arachnids to zits, Oh, Ick! encourages budding scientists to perform real science with ick-speriments, build or craft something with ick-tivities, and investigate nature and the wilds of their home with ick-splorations. Broken down into easy-to-follow step-by-step directions and accompanied by gross (yet fascinating) facts and detailed explanations of 'What Just Happened', readers will create a stinky burp factory and bacteria hotels, solve the case of the clogged toilets, embark on a nature scat scavenger hunt, and hang out with some worms – just to name a few. Featuring 114 interactive experiments and ick-tivities, Oh, Ick delves into the science behind everything disgusting.
