Synopsis

"This fascinating and kid-friendly book gives budding scientists and others an introduction to the tools and strategies needed to evaluate and understand scientific information ..." --School Library Journal Science affects every part of our lives. It can determine the foods we eat, the clothes we weareven the video games we play. But how do you tell the good science from the bad? Bite into Nibbling on Einstein's Brain and learn some winning strategies for sorting the good from the misleading in science. Through playful scenarios and fascinating real-world examples, each chapter encourages critical thinking. You'll find tips for spotting bad science, ideas for identifying reports that misrepresent facts, and ways to keep your own brain from muddling the science news you receive. Bursting with "Baloney Buster" information, quick "Your Turn" activities and playful new illustrations, this brightly redesigned edition, with recent examples of suspicious science, offers a fun approach to becoming a sharp-minded watchdog of reliable science.
