"The power is in your hands when you pick up this funny, spirited collection of science projects for creating and using clean energy. You'll find super-easy projects, such as making a balloon wind gauge or brewing sun tea, as well as exciting challenges like turning a bicycle into a generator (you can use it to charge a phone!) or building an umbrella solar cooker. Each activity includes instructions and safety info, along with lots of photos, comics, and creative ideas for further activities." Kids' Books June 2014 newsletter
