Pinball Science

Pinball Science (Hardback)

From Isaac Newton's laws of motion to types of energy and forces, the 32-page book explains everything you need to know about how your pinball machine works, and includes awesome experiments to do at home. Follow the step-by-step instructions to assemble the 88-piece model with plunger, leavers and flippers.

Publisher: Templar Publishing
ISBN: 9781783705894
This is a perfect gift for a budding scientist or engineer. It is a book which also contains everything the reader needs to make a pinball machine and there are also a number of experiments in the book. The book uses the concept of a pinball machine to look at many of sciences theories including resistance, mass, friction, gravity to name but a few.
The science theories are explained simply and with diagrams, words and ideas to relate them to. They are double page spreads and full of great information. The instructions to construct the pinball machine are very clear and easy to follow and perfect for an older child to follow independently. 
I love these type of books, which contain everything you need to make the item shown and which explain important concepts and theories in a fun and interesting way which children will enjoy doing without realising they are learning.
Thank you to the publishers, Templar Publishing, for sending me the book to review in return for an honest review.
