What's new here?

There’s some new books in town, and they are all great fun for kids. They involve hands-on science projects on a  variety of topics.

First up is the Flying Machine Book:

This books has instructions on how to build 35 different kinds of homemade rockets, gliders, helicopters and more. Soda-Pop rockets, paper boomerangs, rubber-band  powered gliders are all part of the of this 197 page book of flying fun!

Next up is the Amazing Rubber Band Cars

This book does one thing: Have kids make cars powered by rubber bands – but it does it sooo well. Kids will learn about axles, gears, pulleys, friction, tension, speed, and much more as they build a dozen rubber band powered cars out of simple materials like cardboard, pencils, old CD’s and of course rubber bands.

The Paper Boomerang Book takes a part of that first book (The Flying Machine Book) and expands on it dramatically:

Instead of just a couple of pages on boomerangs, this book goes into heavy detail on how to build working paper boomerangs! You start by building trainers and work up to distance models, etc. Chapters are devoted to boomerang theory, tweaking techniques, decoration, and throwing styles!
