I grew up reading "The Amateur Scientist" in "Scientific American" magazine, and built many of the projects (as well as the requisite radios and go-carts) with my Dad. Forty years later, I subscribed to Make: and realized that this is the modern successor to "The Amateur Scientist".
I bought a subscription for myself and my Dad: now, although we're seperated by miles, we can discuss the projects and relive the times we spent together building and breaking things.
I've been inspired to make all sorts of things, and have found that my kids enjoy playing with hand made things as much, or more than any toy we can buy at the store.
There are also all kinds of great ideas for re-using technology.
It covers everything from marshmallow guns to robots. Very entertaining and inspirational and a great supplement to a good science education.
