Penny Ante Science, Revisited is the second in the series and continues the tradition of providing hands-on science activities that use very inexpensive materials such as paper clips, plastic cups, tape, paper and other household materials: hence, the name Penny Ante. Students looking for science fair ideas, or for things to do that are simply fun will enjoy this book. Teachers and parents will appreciate that each activity is focused on a particular concept rather than complicating learning by introducing several ideas at once. The activities are open ended; this means that the answers to the questions posed are based on the data collected rather than a set of facts to be memorized. Teacher tested with elementary through high school students, Penny Ante Science, Revisited activities make learning fun.
