Product Description

Make 50 amazing contraptions that spin, fling, collide, and whiz! With Gizmos and Gadgets you can build a catapult that sends marshmallows flying. Make a perching parrot that balances on a high wire. Send a marble on a wild ride down your room-sized marble ramp. And have a blast constructing more than 50 working science contraptions, using easy-to-find materials.

You can put science to work in your friction-designed gobot, let gravity activate a dino's head, and astound your friends with your owner-built hovercraft. Explore the how's and why's of energy and motion as you construct a rubber band-powered merry-go-round, an action-reaction rocket, and a flow-and-go boat. Think like an inventor in your Inventor's Workshop, creating your own awesome gizmos. Meet Sir Isaac Newton, Galileo, and the inventors of the Frisbee, the Slinky, and Silly Putty. Discover how "failures" can be the start of an even better idea!

Kids will be building, questioning, creating, laughing--and oh yes, learning--as they explore the action-packed world of physics fun through science contraptions that really work! Recommended for ages 7 to 14.
