"As the editor in chief of MAKE magazine, Mark Frauenfelder has spent years combing through DIY books, but he's never been able to find one with geeky projects he can share with his two daughters. Maker Dad is the first DIY book to use cutting-edge (and affordable) technology in appealing projects for fathers and daughters to do together. These crafts and gadgets are both rewarding to make and delightful to play with. What's more, Maker Dad teaches girls lifelong skills--like computer programming, musicality, and how to use basic hand tools--as well as how to be creative problem solvers. The book's twenty-four unique projects include: Drawbot, a lively contraption that draws abstract patterns all by itself Ice Cream Sandwich Necklace Friendstrument, an electronic musical instrument girls can play with friends Longboard Antigravity Jar Silkscreened T-Shirt Retro Arcade Video Game Host a Podcast Lunchbox Guitar Kite Video Camera Innovative and groundbreaking, Maker Dad will inspire fathers to geek out with their daughters and help girls cultivate an early affinity for math, science, and technology."-- Provided by publisher.
