For Steve’s Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes book signing, we shot off Mentos and Diet Coke Geysers in the parking lot and had a liquid Nitrogen parade at the Tattered Cover Book Store in Highlands Ranch. We have more experiments and surprises for the Fire Bubbles and Exploding Toothpaste book signing this week. Who knows what we will do.
The Tattered Cover is used to authors coming in, reading an excerpt from their book and signing a few books. With Steve Spangler book signings, they must check the smoke detectors, warn the fire department and declare a “wet” and “dry” zone (no soda geysers or other science eruptions near the book shelves).
Come to the Tattered Cover in Highlands Ranch this Wednesday, December 7th at 6 p.m. and see what Steve Spangler and crew will do this time. This will be a kid-friendly book signing like no other. We will have special hands-on activities that are sure to keep the kids engaged and you smiling.
If you thought Steve Spangler’s book Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes pushed the limits of your inner mad scientist, Fire Bubbles and Exploding Toothpaste, the second volume of 25 new, extraordinary home experiments is guaranteed to knock your socks off! Seriously… your socks are going to fly across the room. The materials are easy to find and the directions are simple to follow, but the end result is guaranteed to produce lots of ooohs & ahhhs.
This book has over 200 beautiful color photographs that accompany step-by-step instructions for science experiments to do at home and in the classroom. It also has a special teachers-only section full of science demonstrations for the classroom.
Steve has performed some of the experiments in the book with Ellen DeGeneres on her television show. She is proud to be a part of this science experiment book.
Here is a sample of the experiments included in the book…
We’re excited to announce the official release of our enhanced ebook for Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes: Unforgettable Experiments That Make Science Fun. The print version of the book (Greenleaf Book Group) is available in book stores throughout the country, and the enhanced ebook version is available through the iTunes Store. While there’s nothing new about ebooks per se, the notion of an enhanced ebook is very new. In fact, it’s so new that our scientifically enhanced version of Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes is officially the 75th enhanced ebook title ever published. In just a few months, the previous statement will seem so insignificant because there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of titles that flood the market.
Visit the iTunes Store through your iBooks application and search for “Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes”.
What’s the difference between an ebook and an enhanced ebook?
We think of an ebook as a simple conversion of the written word to a generic electronic reader (Kindle or a Nook, for example). The
Denise Plante and Murphy Huston from the KOSI Morning Show in Denver, Colorado invited me to visit their show to talk about our upcoming book signing for Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes. Finding science demonstrations that play well on the radio can be tough, but we hit a home run with this one. I purposely didn’t tell Denise what was going to happen until I uncovered the big container of broken glass. Take a look at what happened…
Last night we gave away several copies of my new book, Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoeson Facebook and Twitter. We had a lot of fun chatting with some amazing teachers, parents and science enthusiasts and asking Steve Spangler Science trivia questions. In all, we gave away over 20 copies of the book. Now here’s your chance to own the book before it becomes available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Greenleaf Book Group gave us 200 advance copies to sell before the September 13th release date. I’ll even sign the books during this special pre-sale time. If you want a book before everyone else gets it, grab one today.
