Mess up your hair and work on your crazy laugh, it's time to bringout your inner mad scientistFrom using a balloon to create a rocket, to powering bottles through the water with paddles, these tried and tested ideas will soon have you on your way to techno-wizardry. You'll also learn to spy on neighbors with a secret Spyscope, or look at your friends upside down with a pin-hole camera. All the projects use everyday materials, a brief fact file explains the science and technology, and there is extra information on nutty inventors and amazing machines.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
