Today is the day!
Dad’s Book of Awesome Science Experiments makes its debut. And I’m giving away a signed copy below!
But first I want to thank the absolute coolest lab partner anyone could ask for: my daughter, Emme. When you see a book, you don’t see all the work that went on behind the scenes, and Emme helped me immeasurably with assistance, tips, and some serious patience that she must get from someone else. That’s her getting amped for an experiment about the pulse. Thanks, kid — I had a blast working with you!
You can buy the book through amazon here, or at a bookstore near you! I’ll be updating this web site very soon with a new look and more ways to find a copy.
Until then, the early reviews are in and they’re awesome and hilarious.
“With step-by-step instructions and color photos, he explains how to do the projects and then has a section called “Why it Works” to explain the science behind the thing you just blew up.” — The Austin American-Statesman.
“Explosive(ly) awesome!” — Denver Post
“Whether kids want to know why leaves change colors or why they get dizzy when they spin around, this book helps answer those curious questions with engrossing projects.” — Time to Play Magazine
“I love that our neighbors’ daughters and our sons were so excited about learning.” — Dad Scribe
“Whether you’re looking to get your kids more excited about science or are just looking for some weekend rainy-day activities, this is the book for you. And your screaming kids.” — Cool Mom Picks
“Be warned: If you get this book and your kids see it they’re probably not going to leave you alone until you make a lot of fun (and possibly messy!) memories while you experiment together.” — Big Cheese Dad
“Will convince your children that you, Dad or Mom, Grandma or Uncle, are indeed awesome.” — Neatorama
“This tome is a winning follow-up to Adamick’s first book, the how-to crafting and backyard building extravaganza called Dad’s Awesome Book of Projects.” — NYC Dads Group
“My daughters and I loved trying many of these out and know that there will be plenty of time to come when we can plow through the other experiments too. This book gives you educational fodder to be able to have fun and learn together in a special way!” — Dad of Divas
“The premise is simple: Science is awesome. Kids are awesome. And time spent learning about how the world works while making things with your kids is almost as awesome as time spent learning about how the world works while blowing things up with your kids.” — At Home Dad Matters
It’s been an exciting few weeks leading up to this day, and I wanted to celebrate with a giveaway. Check out the box below to enter by tweeting, commenting, or sharing on Facebook — thanks!

So what happens when you're building a big airplane and your daughter spies a metric gaggleload of spare wood? That's right. You build a chariot. We made this doohickey for a friend, over the course of an … Read More...
