How Does It Work?

Why does it do that? Develop an elemental understanding of magnetism, electromagnetism, electrochemistry, radio, thermodynamics, light and optics. Simon Quellen Field's 228-page paperback, Gonzo Gizmos, Projects & Devices to Channel your Inner Geek explains processes, equipment and scientific terms -- and then, for starters, tells you things like how to make a rotary steam engine in 15 minutes from a soda can, a candle and a few scraps of rubber tubing. It's the favorite of our resident geeks -- but not for kids unless they're working with an adult. That would be a mature adult. An insured, mature adult.

Surprise! Surprise!

Surprise your parents with a little science at home. “Science Surprises” is a 192-page paperback in its third edition with over 100 experiments that can be done using common household goodies. OK, a couple of things might require a trip to the hardware store, but still.  The science ranges from the Bernoulli principle and Stroop effect to making your own perfume and cold cream. (And remember what Shaw said: “Science never solves a problem without creating ten more,” so that makes a thousand experiments.)

Inspector Gizmo?

The Big Book of Gizmos & Gadgets is a 96-page book from Woodworking & Crafts magazine, and has designs and full-size patterns for (15) projects from toys, noisemakers and automata to a rubber-band Gatling gun and gear machine. Most can be made with hand tools and patience, but the authors admit that a table saw, scroll saw, drill press, sander and rotary tool make things a whole lot easier.
