Book Description

August 1, 2006 1556526105 978-1556526107
This fresh collection of more than 20 science projects—from hydrogen fuel cells to computer-controlled radio transmitters—is perfect for the tireless tinkerer. Innovative activities include taking detailed plant cell photographs through a microscope using a disposable camera; building a rocket engine out of aluminum foil, paper clips, and kitchen matches; and constructing a geodesic dome out of gumdrops and barbecue skewers. Organized by scientific topic, each chapter includes explanations of the physics, chemistry, biology, or mathematics behind the projects. Most of the devices can be built using common household products or components available at hardware or electronic stores, and each experiment contains illustrated step-by-step instructions with photographs and diagrams that make construction easy. No workbench warrior, science teacher, or grown-up geek should be without this idea-filled resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have Series March 18, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Return Of Gonzo Gizmos is another great book, by Simon Quellen Field. It take you on a journey through various fields of science like the first edition. All the projects are easy to follow, and challenging enough for both experienced and inexperienced geeks alike. I like the addition of the mathematics section, but my favorite project has to be the computer controlled radio. While it it's not as lengthy as the first book, I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another thought provoking book January 28, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Put on your thinking caps, as Mr Field will bring you to a few subjects, you cannot wait to experiment with, and if nothing else fuel those neurons and synapses to more imaginative levels. I almost think he should offer a double your money back challenge if you are not satisfied, because if you like science and experimenting and running around with your head full of ideas then you would never take him up on the offer ; ) So I think it is a safe bet.
