Created in association with the Smithsonian Institution and supporting STEM education initiatives, Maker Lab includes 28 kid-safe projects and crafts appropriate for kids ages 8–12. Requiring only household materials, young makers can build an exploding volcano, race balloon rocket cars, and more. Photographs and facts carefully detail the “why” and “how” of each experiment using real-world examples to provide context so kids can gain a deeper understanding of the scientific principles applied.
Author Jack Challoner is available for interviews.
