How can a long metal needle pass through a ballloon without popping it? What can a chocalate chip cookie tell us about the Earth's resources and the importance of environmental conservation? Do spelling and punctuation really matter to the human brain?Author Thomas O'Brien created his Brain-Powered Science series for educators who love to surprise and challenge their students with unanticipated results. Using his inquiry-oriented experiments based on the science of discrepant events, hands-on explorations or demonstrations in which the outcomes are not what students expected, teachers can challenge students' preconceived ideas and urge them to critically examine empirical evidence, and draw logic conclusions to science concepts and pedagogical principles.These thorough and thought-provoking texts include hundreds of internet resources, as well as countless extensions to each of the physical science, biology, and chemistry activities. Most important, Brain-Powered Science makes science teaching and learning enjoyable. O'Brien implores teachers to remember: The study of science is full of surprises and should be both meaningul and fun for students.
