Howtoons are one of the first articles we read when a new MAKE magazine arrives. We've visited the website and we met a couple of the authors at the MAKE Faire earlier this year, and made the infamous marsh mellow shooter.
The book is now out. Our copy arrived from Amazon last night. It's packed with fun science projects (several of them new to us), for kids 8-12 and created in gorgeous full color comic book style. It interleaves projects, with pages describing various types of tools and how to use them. I also appreciate that safety comes first (one of the early projects describes how to build safety glasses from a large plastic soda bottle).
Duncan and I highly recommend it. My wife also ordered two extra copies of the book, and will be donating them to Duncan's school library this week so others can know just how much fun science can be.
