Using everything from electric motors, balloons, and gears to water jets, steam, chemical reactions, and also gravity, this clever handbook delivers many different choices for propelling homemade vessels across a pool. Most inside the watercrafts are built from recycled and easy-to-find materials, but an appendix also lists local and on-line sources for wire, plastic propellers, small motors, and far more. Do-it-yourselfers and kids with an interest in how things function will find hours of educational entertainment inside the projects offered within. Along with all of the boatbuilding activities included within, young naval architects will find directions for constructing an “ ocean” to test the boats plus a quantity of accessories, including 4 different water pumps, a waterproof battery and motor case, plus a working foghorn. Through step-by-step instructions with clear photos, kids will learn how to build more than 20 different model boats for traveling above water and many diverse submarine projects for traveling below the surface.
