Snowball Launchers, Giant-Pumpkin Growers, and Other Cool Contraptions

Snowball Launchers, Giant-Pumpkin Growers, and Other Cool Contraptions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One look at any of these gadgets you can make, and your friends will call you a mechanical genius—or a mad scientist! Build a rocket-propelled toy car or a secret place to hide your treasures from snooping little kids. Grow a pumpkin so big, even an adult cant lift it. Make an automatic dog feeder, a mechanical snowball thrower, or some storm-predicting bells. All fifteen “Amazing Stuff” projects produce toys that are more than playthings. Yet all you need are some pieces of wood, nails, oatmeal boxes, jar lids, and Popsicle sticks. And you just use a hammer, screwdriver, and other tools from around the house—plus a couple of cheap electric motors you can buy at any electronics store.  

Synopsis:

Build Incredible Thingamabobs and Amazing Whigamajigs

Would you like to create your own robot? Or make a solar-powered pocket watch that keeps going and going and going? Find out how to turn simple stuff into cool contraptions. Some will make your life easier, including a thunderstorm detector and a pet watering dish gizmo that refills automatically. Others, like the giant-pumpkin grower, will make you the hit of the neighborhood—especially on Halloween. So don’t wait any longer—get launching right away!
