Howtoons: Tools of Mass Construction!


Scifooers Nick Dragotta and Saul Griffith published their awesomely brilliant Howtoons book yesterday (US only I think). It’s a comic style book aimed at kids with intructions on how to do kitchen science and make brilliant things such as a zoetrope or soda bottle submarine. Theirs was my favourite talk at Scifoo, and not just because I got to seriously geek out with an artist who actually draws ol’ webhead himself. This is a must for anyone who:

1) has children between the ages of 7 and 15

2) Is a child between the ages of 7 and 15

3) Still feels like a child between the ages of 7 and 15, despite physical evidence to the contrary

4) Reads comics

5) Likes making stuff

6) Cares about science.

That’s everyone, isn’t it?
