Description
Since grade school, inventor and slightly mad scientist Cy Tymony has been finding innovative ways to use common items—a talent that naturally led to his Sneaky Uses for Everyday Things series of books. In this entertaining and educational how-to guide he focuses on science facts and resourceful tricks, showing how to craft a barometer, altimeter, and voltmeter from household supplies, while explaining the principles behind meteorology. He shows how to use "sneaky methods" for navigation—like creating a compass from a leaf, needle, and water—and a tricky way to simulate magically floating photos from office supplies.
