Super Science Projects: Klutz Book Reviews

Super Science With Klutz
Super Science With Klutz

Klutz comes up with some SUPER books about SCIENCE (seriously, we’re impressed) that include pretty much everything you need to: do explosive science that’s a real blast, build a solar car, experiment with batteries, build and launch a foam rocket and create some high-performance LEGO projects!


Klutz Boom Splat Kablooey Book

The editors at Klutz must know the kind of science most kids want to do: the kind that blows up stuff! The Boom Splat Kablooey kit comes with all the special equipment you need to make ordinary ingredients from the kitchen go boom in impressive, yet non-destructive, style. Turn table salt and soda into a backyard geyser, use special balloons to turn a regular pop into a big ol' BOOM and make the Can of A Thousand Pops explode again and again and again and ... you get the picture.


The Solar Car Book

The Klutz Solar Car Book is also a complete build-it-yourself solar car kit! The book has very clear instructions and detailed illustrations making assembling the car easy. Once you have your car assembled, you can try it out! Instructions are included for making your car work outdoors by sunlight and indoors with a battery. Have fun with your car. Make it go in circles, or try to beat the Klutz Solar Car X-treme Team's time in the 25-foot dash, the 50-yard dash, a circle marathon or the 25-circle marathon. The rest of the book is filled with fun and interesting information about solar power, how your solar car works and tips to turn your solar car into an award-winning science project.


LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions

Klutz and LEGO have teamed up to bring you the Crazy Action Contraptions book, which comes with easy instructions for making 10 LEGO Action Contraptions and gizmos that clink, clunk, roll, spin, flop over or launch things – in other words, nothing that just sits there. A pouch of 60 special LEGO pieces is bound right into the book. Five of the plans use these pieces only; another five will require some of those LEGOs from under your sofa cushions.


Klutz Build & Launch Foam Rockets Book

With Klutz Build & Launch Foam Rockets Book all you have to do is choose a rocket body design and punch it out of the book. The, following the simple, step-by-step instructions, fold the body and slide it onto a foam fuselage. Now you'’re ready for blast-off: stick the finished rocket onto the air bulb launcher and give a squeeze. ZOOM!


Klutz Battery Science: Make Widgets That Work And Gadgets That Go

Want to get down with your inner Einstein? Check out Battery Science, a cool electronics kit that contains the basic gear you'll need to complete tons of dope electronics projects. When you complete the robot bug or the bedroom burglar alarm you'll prove once-and-for-all that you're a total genius. This pack contains most of the stuff you need to complete all the projects in the book. You'll probably find everything else you need - like tinfoil and paperclips - around the house. The instructions are straightforward and there are lots of nifty diagrams too. There are quite a few small parts that are easy to lose, so be careful. Playing with this book is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.

The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.

No. Edit: To clarify, not everyone's opinions matter on every topic. For example, my opinion on how I feel about quantum mechanics doesn't matter because I know almost nothing about it, and I definitely don't know it on a level where I could describe it accurately with math. Or, if someone is to show time and time again that they have no idea what they're talking about for a specific subject, their opinion about it obviously matters less since they're most likely just willfully uninformed. For worldly things like you might see in the Dear Dish-It section, still not everyone's opinions matter though input, even if silly, is usually a good thing.

While there are quote ''good opinions'' there are supposibly ''bad opinions'' So does every one's opinion truly matter? dispite what they taught us in school.
