Maker Dad: Lunch Box Guitars, Antigravity Jars, and 22 Other Incredibly Cool Father-Daughter DIY Projects
Title: Maker Dad: Lunch Box Guitars, Antigravity Jars, and 22 Other Incredibly Cool Father-Daughter DIY Projects

ISBN: 9780544114548

From the Publisher:

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.
