    Years of testing with children has produced this carefully crafted set of doable projects. Build a spinning motor; a clicking telegraph; a light flashing generator; a real radio.
   Contains step-by-step, highly visual instructions* to lead a child successfully through each invention. Incredible illustrations present central scientific concepts, allowing children to discover the "why" as well as the "how". The use of everyday materials demystifies the way common electronic components work.

   Although Inventions is designed for 8 years old and up, this title has had an extraordinary history and following. It has been used at MIT to mentor high school students in physics. It has been used at U.C. Berkeley to mentor women in science. It has been used similarly at other institutions including Fermi Lab and the University of Texas at Austin. We heard rumors, that at one point, a number of physicists at Berkeley were spinning the hand made motors from Inventions on their desks, competing for the bragging rights as to whose was spinning the fastest.
   Inventions received a rave review from the Women's Society of the IEEE. They used Inventions for camp programs for elementary school students. The review boasted: "The projects actually WORK"....even for large groups where individualized attention is not possible.

   As with the entirety of the ScienceWiz line, the kits are accompanied by a booklet written specifically for children. The writing is clear, concise, and easily engaging, complimented strongly by clever illustrations.


* The art used in this book was derived from a project which was funded by the National Science Foundation.
