Geek Dad is Perfect for the Tech-Savvy Dad
They may no longer wear pocket protectors and horn-rimmed glasses, but you know who they are. Tech-savvy dads are brainy, innovative, and they know there is much more to quality time with the kids than playing chess. But they may not know how to make their passion for science and technology palatable for those they love. What they need is Geek Dad Awesomely Geeky Projects and Activities for Dads and Kids to Share.

Do-It-Yourself Scientific Learning and Discovery Projects
Geek Dad is the ultimate DIY project guide for dads who want to see their children develop excitement for scientific learning and discovery. From finger painting with windup toys to aerial shots with a video camera attached to helium balloon, Geek Dad has a multitude of projects that will not only engage but also enlist the enthusiastic help of your little geek-lings. For our family it will be building the largest, sturdiest slip and slide this property has ever seen. Geek Dad will show us how. And when the weather forces us inside there is always model building with cake to keep creative little hands busy. Geek Dad includes a super helpful guide with difficulty levels, costs, and material lists for each project.

Breathe Life Into Your Family's Science Curriculum
Every project may not be suitable for your family; we just skip the chapter on game-based role-playing. But there are enough illustrated projects that a parent and child can do together, that this will breathe life into any homeschool family's science curriculum. Plus the author Ken Denmead, a professional civil engineer and father of two, anticipates a dedicated website for the book where a community of folks who have tried the projects and modified or even improved upon them can share their experience.
