From armored tanks and gliders to ‘plastic glass’ and drawing machines, this interactive book provides learning through hands-on building projects and activities. Kids examine some original sketches and learn about the models he made of his inventions. From there they delve into detailed step-by-step instructions, diagrams, and templates for each project, which are interspersed with historical facts, biographical anecdotes, and trivia. Most of the building can be done using simple household supplies: construction paper, tape, markers, glue, cardboard tubes, aluminum foil, and cardboard boxes.
