Plot Summary:
'Tweens who want to get in touch with their inner geek will not only find many easy projects to work on, they will be able to build these "toys" in the comfort of their own homes. Before young scientists begin their projects, it is imperative that they read the section on safety. Although these projects are simple, and small, they do require assembly that involves tools that could smash,cut, and burn young fingers.

Once readers become familiar with safety procedures, they are several different projects they can work on in the following areas: chemistry, aerodynamics, electricity and magnetism, computers and electronics, mathematics, and biology. Most of these projects require regular household items, which are easy to find; however, the more complex projects require specific tools that may take a few days to find and a little more money to purchase. Besides this element, this book is very well written with simple instructions and photographs to help tweens build their very own hydrogen cells, homemade ice cream, and computer-controlled radio transmitter.
