Do you like building model rockets? Have a hankering for building something that you can shoot into the sky? Can you read and follow directions? If the answer to all of these questions is YES, then take a look at Gavin Harper’s 50 Model Rocket Projects for the Evil Genius!
My family has enjoyed quite a few of Gavin Harper’s books, and this one is no exception. One thing that we appreciate, is that all of his interesting “Evil Genius” books are easy to read. If you are a “model rocket” beginner, start at Chapter 5, as that is a good way to break into the rocket-building arena.
Using simple household items, you can build usable motors for your rockets by following his step-by-step instructions. Some of the rockets involve items you will have to purchase, but a rocket can easily be constructed with things you already have in your home.
Parents – your children will be amazed as the watch your homemade model rocket take off, and if you involve them in the book, they will learn about the history of rockets, the science behind them, and how to make them themselves.
Teachers – the information contained in this book will interest your students in the science of propulsion and space travel in a manner that will involve them and spark their imaginations. It is one thing to read about rockets – quite another to build one, and see it in action.
We don’t really want anyone to become an “Evil Genius” to enjoy this book. Everyone will enjoy it, and want to build their own rockets as soon as they read the title!
P.S. Adult supervision while building model rockets, is a “given”.Buy Now
