- Junkyard Jam Band: DIY Musical Instruments and Noisemakers
his book for teens on up is for intermediate makers. It’s not your “average grab an empty oatmeal canister and turn it into a drum.” The projects are a bit more complex (some involve soldering) and tackle things like circuit bending, making a Droid Voicebox and an electric ukulele from a cigar box.

- Welcome to the Beginner's Guide to Propulsion (NASA)
What is propulsion? The word is derived from two Latin words: pro meaning before or forwards and pellere meaning to drive. Propulsion means to push forward or drive an object forward. A propulsion system is a machine that produces thrust to push an object forward. On airplanes, thrust is usually generated through some application of Newton's third law of action and reaction.
- Rocket Races Handout (NASA)
I use cardboard or cereal box for the body and bottle caps for wheels.
- Clothespin Button Racer
I would use bottle caps for wheels and a bamboo skewer for the axel otherwise this is a good alternative to not using balloons.
I use these activities with our Birding class.
