Description
What do a pair of kid inventors with a knack for science and electronics do when Hollywood comes to town? Why save the day, of course! In Nick and Tesla's Special Effects Spectacular , 11-year-old siblings Nick and Tesla Holt find themselves on the set of a big-budget superhero movie. But someone's sabotaging the onscreen debut of their favorite comic book hero, so the brother and sister sleuths must crack the case with the help of a fresh assortment of homemade special-effects gadgets. This cinematic saga features instructions for all-new movie magic projects that kids can build themselves, such as camera gear, stunt dummies, make-up magic, and more. Science and electronics have never been so much fun! "How do you connect students interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) with fiction reading? Look for science adventures. Get started with the Nick and Tesla series. Each book contains an engaging adventure revolving around a 'build-it-yourself' science project."-- Teacher Librarian "Real project blueprints are included along with this tale of 11-year-old siblings who create outrageous contraptions and top-secret gadgets."-- Los Angeles Times
