Organic chemistry?! What's that?! Organic chemistry deals with carbon and living things that are made of it, such as sugar, baking soda, and soap. It is easy to learn about this branch of science by doing some of the experiments in Robert Gardner's latest collection of science projects. Why is it important to cook certain foods? How does soap remove dirt? Many of the experiments can be done in the kitchen (since foods are organic) and only require some simple household objects and a curious mind. If you're planning on competing in a science fair, this book will give you plenty of ideas and suggestions for further experiments.
