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.

Thank you.)) After the battle to banish the Empire succeeded, The pony of shadows now for a thousand years gone, The feasts of celebration were well underway, And the Princesses rejoiced that the battle was won.   Star Swirl the Bearded, great wizard of old, Had remained there as long as he may, But as soon as he rose, the hall to leave There came an event that forced him to stay.   A figure stepped in from the midst of a storm: The doors were flung open with tremendous might By a stallion of stature like never before seen His presence alone dimmed the room’s light.   His hooves pounded the floor and forced it to crack Legs like tree-trunks, and a voice like thunder His eyes flashed like stars underneath his hood All present had their composures thrown asunder.   “Greetings!” The unicorn cried to the thrones. “I have traveled from the Northland’s wastes To meet the Sisters of much I have heard And so I have arrived, coming with haste.”   Celestia bowed with grace to this stranger “We accept you in our halls, you are to be certain You will be welcome as long as you stay. But I request you tell of your journey and all it may pertain.   Begin with your name, if you please,” she concluded. And the unicorn nodded in acceptance. “Of course. You behold Polaris, a messenger For my people, and have come to pay penance   To the rulers of our far away neighbors. I am the chieftain of my tribe in the North, Masters of snow and flame in our magic. But now we are in need, and I have come forth   To beg of you your assistance.” He bowed in his head, in pleading he waited While averting his eyes to the ground. Not wanting the Princess to know what was unstated.   Star Swirl arose, proudly he stood, His horn lit aflame to point to the sky. “Of course we will help! I’ll accompany you myself!” He did not pause to ask Polaris why.

Fact:Out of the 7 hours, schools only teach you something 1 hour and 45 minutes of the whole day.

Yeah, I really think schools should change their teaching methods. Every year, when I take the standardized tests, I see again and again at least 40% of the test something the teachers never taught. It also doesn't really give you much stuff you actually will need beyond high school, unless you plan on being an ultimate master-of-all-subjects in college and want to try every single job out there at least once. Maybe then.
