Oh, Ick!: 114 Science Experiments to Gross You Out! Here are a whole lot of ick-speriments, ick-tivities, and ick-splorations that bring the lessons of chemistry, biology, physics, and more to vivid, sometimes fetid, foul, and feculent life. From awesome acids and teeming bacteria to garbage, guts, poop, and vomit, it's your guidebook to earning the Nobel Prize of nasty. 

Build a working model of your own eyeball and see things upside down, the way your retina does! Study the bacteria invading your home and body by assembling a cozy place for them to thrive. Become an arachnid expert by making a life-size tarantula out of fruit and licorice. Then eat it! See osmosis in action when you pop eggs into vinegar and corn syrup. The squishy results will revolt and amaze you. Plus, help your spotty older sibling understand acne by baking Pimple Cupcakes-pop 'em, then eat 'em!
