MY THOUGHTS -
There are a handful of good ideas in here. I am a nanny for four children ranging from 18 mo - 11 yrs., there are few of these projects I plan on doing with them. I like the zip line out of a plastic cup and straw and the pulley system also out of a cup, straw and a ribbon spool, and last I liked the exploding plastic baggie.
My biggest problem with book is that there were way too many things that needed Lego's. That's fine if that was what you were looking for. I thought maybe there should be a separate book of "cool science things made with Lego's". Also you needed special small batteries and wires for a few.
So a few cool ideas but this book did not blow me away.
I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from RABT book tours - Thank You!
