Cardboard is everywhere! For creative kids aged 9 to 14, it's an excellent eco-friendly building material, and Cardboard Box Engineering by Jonathan Adolph is a fantastic guide to get them started on inventive tinkering. A working kaleidoscope, a marble roller coaster, a robotic hand, and a wind-powered tractor with cardboard gears are just some of the ingenious projects developed by the author. Working with simple household tools, kids can follow the step-by-step photographic instructions to exercise their design smarts, expand their 3-D thinking, and learn the basics of physics and engineering with activities that have real-life applications.
