Publisher Description

With 20 amazing projects, Star Wars. Maker Lab teaches your budding Padawan how to become a Master of Science, in both the real world and the Star Wars galaxy.

Ever wanted to move things without touching them like a Jedi can? Or grow your own kyber crystal? Or maybe explode a balloon with a beam of energy, just like the Death Star? Now you can! Using clear step-by-step instructions, the book guides home scientists and makers through each exciting experiment - from making Jabba's gooey slime or a hovering landspeeder, to an Ewok catapult and a glowing Gungan Globe of Peace. Each experiment explains the real-world science as well as the Star Wars science fiction from the movies.

With projects that are out of this world, this fantastic Star Wars book can keep children entertained for hours, making use of many household items such as cardboard tubes, baking soda, cornstarch, straws, balloons, and food colouring. There is also plenty to keep more adventurous scientists enthralled, with instructions to make your own bristlebot mouse droid, lightsaber duel, and Mustafar volcano. Star Wars Maker Lab supports STREAM (Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) learning and helps children to learn the basics of science by travelling through the Star Wars galaxy. May the (static) force be with you!

Review

What a treat this book has been for both our boys... The links between experiments and the stories were fun and led to a desire to watch the films -- Parent with child age 8 Toppsta My son is very creative and loves art, and he really enjoyed this book. Would highly recommend and a book that will be used over and over again -- Parent with child age 9 Toppsta Both girls and boys can enjoy these activities and experiments -- Parent with children ages 6 and 7 Toppsta There are lots of excellent activities here to occupy a Star Wars fan over the Summer holidays. What I like about this book is the clear explanations, Star Wars and Science (basic) facts and colourful imagery. We would both recommend this book -- Parent with child age 8 Toppsta The book made me feel like an inventor who could create lots of fun things. I love this book -- Child age 8 Toppsta This book is amazing, So many great ideas. Me and my brother are both Star Wars fans so this is brilliant for us. Easy to follow instructions. Very good pictures as well -- Child age 10 Toppsta I really like this book, it has lots of science based art activities and experiments... and it's Star Wars which is awesome -- Child age 10 Toppsta Ever wanted to create Jabba slime, own a Hoth snow globe or build your own roving 'Mouse' droid? Well, now you can do all of that, plus a whole lot more Home Cinema Choice
