Calling all Geek Dads! What would it take to tear your kids away from their computers? How about if they could launch a camera into orbit, make their own cartoon film, or even build a rope swing? This hands-on manual is packed with fun-filled projects for dads and kids to enjoy together. Water slides, electronic origami, illuminated wallets, exploding drinks. There are activities for all ages, from five to 15 years old. With easy to follow step-by-step instructions you can choose a perfect project to fill a few minutes or to make a long afternoon fly past. It's time to get geeky.
Full of inspiring projects that do not require upper-body strength or the ability to talk to girls. The helium balloon with a camcorder attached is pure sci-fi genius -- Phil Hilton The Times
