Science Saturday: Duct Tape Engineer

When you think of science, do you think of duct tape? My daughter who is a STEM aficionado sure does. After all, everything can be fixed with duct tape. Can just about anything be made with it too? Find out in this book of big, bigger, and epic duct tape projects.

In Duct Tape Engineer–the book of Big, Bigger, and Epic Duct Tape Projects hands-on educator, master tinkerer, and author of Rubber Band Engineer, Lance Akiyama breaks away from table-top crafts and shows you how to design, sculpt, and build backpacks, kayaks, catapults, a queen-size bed, and even even a writing desk and chair with duct tape.

These fourteen projects are designed to be long-lasting as well as fun, and include advice on solid construction techniques and even weather proofing. Packed with full-color illustrations and easy to follow instructions, Duct Tape Engineer will make the perfect gift for any maker on your list.

Roll up your sleeves, de-clutter the workbench, and stake out a space in the garage. You’re going to need it – or perhaps the whole backyard – when you become a duct tape engineer. We doubt you will be able to stop taping once you get started!

What will you build or design?
