"In the real world, it really wouldn't be a good idea to play with lava. It's not a great idea in Minecraft, either, but it's a lot safer than it would be at home! This fascinating book will show young readers ways they can experiment in Minecraft using real-world facts about the science behind these projects. They can work with lava and water to produce different kinds of stone, with gunpowder to produce fireworks (and TNT!), and with the game's many plants to produce different kinds of dyes and other materials. All for science!"-- Provided by publisher.
