About Kate the Chemist: The Awesome Book of Edible Experiments for Kids

25 incredible--and EDIBLE--science experiments to get kids excited about science!

Did you know that all cooking is really chemistry? And that chocolate chip cookies will look--and taste--completely different if you swap out baking powder for baking soda? Or swap out brown sugar for white sugar?

In this cookbook packed with 25 edible science experiment recipes kids can do in their own kitchen, chemistry professor and science entertainer Kate the Chemist introduces young scientists to the fascinating world of STEM--and cooking!
Kids can make their own:

    Chocolate-covered pretzels
    Rainbow pasta
    Ice cream
    Pretzel bites
    and more!
Each recipe includes step-by-step instructions, an ingredients list, full-color photographs, a messiness factor rating, and a note from Kate explaining the science behind each delicious treat.

About Kate the Chemist: The Birthday Blastoff

The fourth installment of the Kate the Chemist fiction series that shows kids that everyone can be a scientist! Perfect for fans of the Girls Who Code series.

When Kate's brother Liam is having a science-themed birthday party the very same day that the science club in Kate's school is planning a special rocket launch experiment, Kate isn't sure how she'll manage to do it all: be a great big sister AND a great science club member. But with a little help from chemistry--and her friends--Kate figures out a way to be in two places at once. That is, until she is late to pick up the ice cream cake, which means Liam won't have a birthday cake for his party! Will science be able to save the day?

From Kate the Chemist, chemistry professor and science entertainer as seen on The Late Show with Stephen ColbertThe Wendy Williams Show, and The Today Show, comes a clever and fun middle grade series that is the perfect introduction to STEM for young readers!
