Description:

This colorful non-commercial website, created by educator Slater Harrison, offers some tried and true projects involving science. The projects use "easily-available, inexpensive materials, and don't require special skills, tools materials or facilities." The author encourages "creative inventors and tinkerers" to improve on the project designs. Some examples of projects include making robot hands, designing a "stomp rocket" and exploring optical illusions. Each project description includes a "more about" section that offers additional explanations, related activities and links to related websites for further research. Narratives that accompany the project descriptions offer some background context. Statistics of visitors to this website are also posted online to show how many international borders this website has crossed.
