The wildly popular DIY dad follows up his instant New York Times bestseller with a fresh batch of geeky weekend science projects for the whole family to enjoy.

•Build homemade robots from scratch
•Write and direct simple stop-motion movies
•Hack into mechanical toys to add cool electronic twists, and more
