About the Potato Chip Science Book & Experiment Kit

Kids can have some yummy scientific fun with Potato Chip Science, from Workman Publishing. This kit lets you turn empty chip bags, tubes, and lids (not to mention spuds and chips) into experimental adventures. Munch your way through experiments with acoustics, aeronautics, forensics, physiology, physics, and biology – and learn the science behind potato chips. The kit contains:


  • 96-page book providing step-by-step instructions
  • Bag that can be turned into a kite, compass, or “hydrofoil”
  • Digital sound chip that plays “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” . . . powered by a potato! (spud not included)
  • 6-inch propulsion pipe that launches spud pellets 50 feet!
  • Biodegradable starch base (makes a great Chipmobile chassis!)
  • 6 optical stickers
  • 6 chip lids (the wheels of the Chipmobile!)
  • Spud-powered digital clock (once again, potato not included)
  • 4 zinc and copper electrodes
  • Googly eyes
  • Wire connectors
  • Eco-friendly starch knife (to carve the Spuddy Buddy and Shrunken Potato Head)
  • Packing “chips” (used as ammunition for the Confetti Can-non!)
