Structured Teaching of Research and Experimentation Skills (S.T.O.R.E.S.) Cover

Dr. Robert E. Mason is an award-winning science teacher and a distinguished mathematician. His S.T.O.R.E.S. aims to teach and demonstrate the principles and skills of scientific experimentation and research. It features an engaging collection of 45 experiments devised and conducted by middle schoolers, and it invites students to examine in detail the methods used and the results obtained to see how they can be improved. 

The students chose subjects that interested them: Which shampoos are best for strengthening hair? What is the best way to prevent the growth of bacteria on toothbrushes? What is the effect of water on the weight of melons? Can smaller eggs support more weight? What affects the growth of goldfish? Do ants remember the flavor of food? 

There are chapters on the nature of research and on the history, uses, and making of carbon dioxide, oxygen, and hydrogen gases, as well as useful appendices to teach skills and much practical advice on experimenting with mealworms.
