Reviews

“I really wish I'd had a book like this when I was a kid, and I think any young person who gets their hands on this book is really lucky. Who knows what kind of awesomeness this will inspire? I can't think of a better way to get kids away from screens and working with their hands, thinking, and inventing. This book might even change the world!” — Christian Ristow, robotic sculpture artist

“STEAM activities, such as the ones featured throughout the text, foster creativity, problem-solving, and teach the value of repurposing items… An engaging addition to any “How To” section. This book could be an exciting resource for students and teachers.”
School Library Journal
