Super Science Projects: Klutz Book Reviews

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.

Love!! Love!! Love!! Your love will be the first person you think about when you wake up and the last person you think about before you go to sleep. When something good happens to you, this is the first person you want to tell. When something bad happens to you, you look to this person for support. Love is selfless. I was the most important person in my world until I met my girlfriend. Once I fell in love with her, her needs became much more important than my own. This is just how love is. Your needs always seem trivial in comparison to your significant other’s needs. You are never afraid to express your feelings in public I have this semi-bad habit of telling the world how in love I am with my girlfriend. When you’re truly in love, you want everyone to know. You are not bashful about your feelings by any means. When you like someone, there is a lot of holding back on how you feel. Falling in love is one of the most exciting, rewarding and scariest things you could ever do. Once you’re in love with someone, it’s hard to remember how you lived without him or her. Of course, you were alive before you met this person, but you really didn’t start “living” until the two of you met. Tell me on your own aspect, what did you really know about love..

Okay, so you see this sticker here, yeah?:   [s:p/1jke] It's a cat in one of those grocery basket things. That's no big deal, right? EXCEPT IT IS A BIG DEAL! Considering the small size of that basket, and the size of the cat,   [s:p/1jko]   [s:p/1jkp]   [s:p/1jkn] the cat would fill up the entire basket by itself and be hanging out some. But there are groceries in the basket. That can't be possible.  How did the cat and the groceries fit into the basket so easily? Is there some sort of abyss at the bottom of the basket? I need answers.   [s:p/1mke]
