For students of all ages.
Thirty easy, fun, and safe experiments teach scientific principles to children or provide an unusual object lesson illustration of a Bible teaching.

Science & the Bible: 30 Scientific Demonstrations Illustrating Scriptural Truths
I use this to aid in teaching Bible stories or history to primary and middle school children. Using these demonstrations improves childrens' attention and memory retention.

I wondered what type of experiments this book would offer and almost thought it would be a repeat of experiments in other books, only interjecting Christianity. It was not. There are experiments introducing students to physics and chemistry as well as ones supporting general science. There are several that are fun to do in groups and many that can be done with one student. I really like how the authors tied in God's characteristics in a tangible way.

Finding a book which has 'cool' science experiments to support a biblical message is hard to find, if it exists. The experiments in these books are fair and the coorelation to the bible message fair as well. If you are looking for a few experiments that will dazzle your audience, you may find them here, but do not expect the 30-90 that they claim.
