Editorial Reviews

Quill & Quire
This book will appeal to children who have an interest in making the gadgets and gizmos for their own sake. They will learn much about the practical applications of electricity, and the breakdown into steps allows the more creative kids to go on and build battery-powered gadgets of their own.
Science Activities
With his ample knowledge and ability to present activities in a clear fashion, Bartholomew makes tough subject matter accessible. Two major strengths of Electric Gadgets and Gizmos are its superior yet simple illustrations and its easy-to-follow instructions.
