Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up?This extensive collection of do-it-yourself projects ranges from simple ideas using household materials to sophisticated plans requiring a significant investment of time and money, a few of which, such as a parabolic sound antenna, are unique. Each device or set-up includes a list of materials, generally clear instructions, and a black-and-white drawing of the finished product. Unfortunately, the title is misleading; most of these projects are demonstrations and need to be incorporated into a series of experiments to work for science fairs, and there isn't much discussion of the science behind each one. In addition, judges might disqualify "Overpopulation Studies" that lead to guppies dying, and the complicated refracting telescope could prove disappointing. The volume also lacks a list of science-supply houses and a list for further reading.?Alan Newman, American Chemical Society, Washington, DC

Review

Middle through high school grades are quite frequently faced with the daunting task of conceiving of and producing a project suitable for showing: enter this collection of experiments, which covers everything from building a working telescope to creating a miniature ecosystem for display. This outlines many projects which will prove readily achievable with a minimum of special materials. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
If you want to build a machine for your science fair project, this book is for you. It has detailed instructions on how to do it. This is a good, "How does it work?" type book.
Read the title carefully though. There are no experiments in the book, no suggestions on how to present it, no suggestions on categories, or anything. The "Make-It-Yourself" is quite literal. It's not talking about science fair projects as a whole, only machinery.

By A Customer on January 17, 2003
Format: Paperback
The ideas are great. The instructions are terrible. I have found so many errors in the book such as listing materials in the instructions which are not in the material list. The material list gives very little information such as which brand of mint box. The pictures and the instructions do not seem to always go togethers I have also spent many hours tracking down some of the materials due to the outdated supplies. The instructions do not fully explain things, such as which wire goes to the negative and which wire goes to the positive battery terminal. I want my students to experiment, but not to re-invent the experiment due to the poor instuctions. I have been very disappointed.

This book is great for busy parents and children it gives a list of items needed to do the project, a step by step direction on how to do the project and it also explains what the person doing the project will be trying to accomplish or proof.
