520    Step-by-step instructions to building more than 30 
       fascinating devices are included in this book for 
       workbench warriors and grown-up geeks. Detailed 
       illustrations and diagrams explain how to construct a 
       simple radio with a soldering iron, a few basic circuits, 
       and three shiny pennies. Instructions are included for a 
       rotary steam engine that requires a candle, a soda can, a 
       length of copper tubing, and just 15 minutes. To use 
       optics to roast a hot dog, no electricity or stove is 
       required, just a flexible plastic mirror, a wooden box, a 
       little algebra, and a sunny day. Also included are 
       experiments most science teachers probably never 
       demonstrated, such as magnets that levitate in midair, 
       metals that melt in hot water, a Van de Graaff generator 
       made from a pair of empty soda cans, and lasers that 
       transmit radio signals. Every experiment is followed by an
       explanation of the applicable physics or chemistry.
