EVERYONE LOVES EMILY: Common Sense Media calls Emily Calandrelli “the science teacher we all wish we had as young kids.” And Bill Nye the Science Guy celebrated the first Stay Curious book with these words: “Here are 50, count 'em, 50 home experiments you can count on. Each is a crowd, or home experimenter, pleaser. Emily wrote this book for kids of all ages, and it’s full of references to women who changed the world—with science. It doesn’t matter where you start—be curious; open to any page; take some notes; Emily will keep you exploring.” This new volume features 50 brand-new experiments to keep the fun and learning going.

Praise For…

"This compilation of family-friendly experiments... will perk up public and school library STEAM collections."


Stay Curious and Keep Exploring: Next Level is jam-packed with wonderful, ACCESSIBLE home science experiments that bring learning to life! I love how this book lays out the science, teaches the methods, poses the questions, and provides the explanations to help young kids blossom in their understanding of our everyday world. The fact that most families will have the materials required just lying around is so convenient. From flying ping-pong balls to gaseous chemical concoctions, giving families the recipe to bring science education home is a BIG DEAL!”
