Based off the popular Maker Movement sweeping through America, these books for middle schoolers consist of a few simple projects in an advanced field of engineering. The overall goal in each is to illustrate advanced concepts to kids by having them complete highly technical (though simplified) projects. Each book begins with an introduction to the concept, teaching kids the ins and outs of topics like 3D Printing, Robotics, etc., before delving into related projects. Several of these projects are easy to accomplish and require only a few household tools. Others are more complex and require an online pattern/instruction download, the purchase of a separate kit, or use of advanced equipment (as can be found at a school, Maker Club, or other scientific institute). The overall emphasis is on simplicity and group projects. Kids are encouraged to work with other young engineers, forming DIY clubs or simply finding other similar-age partners for each project. While each requires some level of adult assistance (as some dangerous materials/machines are used), kids are able to work on/participate throughout, learning and acting as the main contributor.
