Our Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments Penny Experiment Update

Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments cover

If you recall, we reviewed Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments wonderful book last week!

I wanted to share with you how Miss Grace's Penny Shiners experiment is going 

penny shiners experimetn 3

Yup- that is a penny that has COME APART into 3 pieces! 

In about a week, the salt and vinegar solution broke down the one penny and separated the front and back and rim! Miss Grace was VERY impressed! And it was a great learning lesson in how the coins are made!

The other 2 pennies have not separated yet- they are older- 1970/1972, so that might have something to do with it. We decided to leave them for another week to see what will happen! Will keep you posted!

  1. Loved Mike Adamick's first book (Dad's Book of Awesome Projects), but this one may be even better ... it teaches kids the whys and wherefores of science without beating kids over the head with education. Everything in here is actually, gasp, FUN for them to do!
