Riding a bicycle, learning a new language, catching a ball, reading a book: these activities and everything else we see, hear, feel, and do are made possible by the soft, whitish-pink substance inside our heads called the brain. And yet, we take for granted many of the amazing things our brain does for us. And so, Brain Lab for Kids offers 52 family-friendly activities, science experiments, and models to help us understand how the brain accomplishes all that it does. Each lab in this book is divided into several sections. After the title of each lab, the approximate time it will take to do the experiment is listed. The “Methods” section provides a step-by-step guide of the procedures and materials you will need to complete the lab. The science behind an experiment is explained in the “What’s Going On” section. “Brain Facts” are interesting, fun, and perhaps surprising bits of trivia related to each lab. Finally, “Thinking Deeper” has suggestions that you can use to take each lab further. The expanding field of brain science, also called neuroscience, offers the opportunity for all of us to learn about ourselves and others, and how we can better communicate, motivate, inspire and just plain collaborate together.

Decorating a child's room is very much like buying the child clothes: however terrific your choices, they'll soon be outgrown and need replacing. That's why Mom and Dad will really go for these 30 easy-to-build, money-saving projects-including several kinds of desks, a free-standing chalkboard, and jigsaw wall art. And it's all based on revamping and accessorizing existing furniture to keep pace with a youngster's changing needs, rather than starting from scratch. None of the projects require advanced woodworking skills and most can be completed in a single day. From the treasure chest table made from an old toy chest to the Drop-Leaf Flower Desk or Goal! Bed, every project features cool stuff that kids will love.

Did the twentieth century live up to what Swedish design reformer and social theorist Ellen Key, writing in 1900, envisaged as "the century of the child" ? This book, produced in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, takes both its title and its launching point from Key's landmark book, which presaged the coming century as a period of intensified focus on and progressive thinking about the rights, development, and well-being of children. It tracks the fascinating confluence between the cultures of modern design and childhood, through an introductory essay by Juliet Kinchin, sixty-five short essays, and more than four hundred illustrations. The resulting kaleidoscopic narrative of innovative ideas, practitioners, and artifacts examines individual and collective visions for the material world of children, from utopian dreams for the citizens of the future to the dark realities of political conflict and exploitation. Despite being the focus of intense concern and profound thought, children remain one of the most underrepresented subjects in the historical analysis of modern design. To address this lacuna, this book surveys more than one hundred years of school architecture, playgrounds, toys and games, educational materials, children's hospitals and safety equipment, nurseries, furniture, animation, propaganda, advertising, books, and clothing. The outstanding projects that emerge illuminate how progressive design has enhanced the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of children and, conversely, how models of children's play and pedagogy have informed experimental design thinking. As protean beings and elastic ideological symbols, children help us to mediate between the ideal and real: they propel our thoughts forward. But as we look back, they also reveal important new dimensions of modernism in the twentieth century.
