Here's a project I've been working on recently... well, since I returned from the States in Jan. It's been a great project to work on, the stories by Steve Hockensmith are cool, the practical experiments by Science Bob Pflugfelder are great and the guys at Quirk have been fantastic to work with. This is book 1 of the new series of middle grade adventures, Nick & Tesla's High Voltage Danger Lab, which will be available in November. I'm now working on book 2. My boys will love these books in a few years!
Nick and Tesla are bright 12-year-old siblings with a knack for science, electronics, and getting into trouble. When their parents mysteriously vanish, they're sent to live with their Uncle Newt, a brilliant inventor who engineers top-secret gadgets for a classified government agency. It's not long before Nick and Tesla are embarking on adventures of their own-engineering all kinds of outrageous MacGyverish contraptions to save their skin: 9-volt burglar alarms, electromagnets, mobile tracking devices, and more. Readers are invited to join in the fun as each story contains instructions and blueprints for five different projects. In Nick and Tesla's High-Voltage Danger Lab, we meet the characters and learn how to make everything from rocket launchers to soda-powered vehicles. Learning about science has never been so dangerous-or so much fun!
This is one of my Illustrations from inside the book. i also illustrated lots of diagrams of the science experiments
