Grade 7 Up - This intriguing book uses the common bicycle to offer readers a variety of science-fair ideas. Beginning with a history of the bicycle, the book then covers the easier experiments while the more complicated ones are provided in the final two chapters. Solid advice is also offered, such as encouraging students to keep a notebook to record ideas, data, and observations. Each experiment includes a list of the materials required, and many include another box that elaborates on how the ideas presented can be expanded upon. The materials required are items typically found in most households, such as chalk, yardstick, marbles, etc. Experiments include using a bicycle to measure speed and distance, how the force of friction opposes the motion of a bike, and the transfer of energy from rider to bicycle. Simple black-and-white illustrations and photographs help to clarify the scientific principles presented. A useful and potentially fun approach to science. - Maren Ostergard, Bellevue Regional Library, WA

Gr. 6-9. Gardner demonstrates the principles of physics through 22 projects and many related activities using bicycles. An introductory chapter, which features advice about experiments, science fairs, and safety, is followed by a brief section on bicycle history. Gardner then clearly explains a series of progressively more difficult projects. The illustrations appearing at the beginnings of chapters and experiments are humdrum, but the black-and-white drawings that illustrate the projects are unusually clear, accurate, and expressive. Back matter includes a glossary and lists of recommended books and Internet sites. A good entry in the Science Fair Success series. Carolyn Phelan
