I gave this book a quick look and the projects looked really fun and well illustrated. I gave this book to my cousin that has a four year old. I was told She absolutely loves this book. What better endorsement do you need. ( )

First book I've read in this series. Nick, Tesla and their friends solve a light mystery about a movie star's true intentions on the set. The movie-making-themed STEM projects (steady cam set-up for a cell phone, zombie makeup, robo arm) will excite and inspire maker kids and prospective inventors. I read the ARC, which was missing illustrations and other projects. ( )

I enjoyed the premise of this book. The author cleverly weaves science experiments into the story. The writing was fun and engaging. ( )

This book is a great addition to our home school library, a fun read for kids that features fun activities with movie special effects. I love books that make learning fun, and this series certainly fits the bill. Recommended not only for home school families but anyone with kids who are interested in movie making. ( )

I received this as a review copy. Neat story of 2 imaginative kids who make science fun. This time they are involved with a superhero movie that is being sabotaged. Nick and Tesla come to the rescue. The book make science interesting for kids and adults. A plus is the inclusion of the instructions and drawings for their inventions. ( )
