But they may not know how to make their passion for science and technology palatable for those they love. What they need is The Geek Dad Book for Aspiring Mad Scientists.

The Geek Dad Book for Aspiring Mad Scientists is the ultimate DIY project guide for dads who want to see their children develop excitement for scientific learning and discovery. From extracting your own DNA to spaceship design, The Geek Dad Book for Aspiring Mad Scientists has a multitude of projects that will not only engage but also enlist the enthusiastic help of your little geeklings.The book even 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, 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.
