From the Publisher
Welcome to the World of Electricity and Electronics
Hi! I’m Makey!
Have you heard about the movement that’s sweeping the globe? The one where people design, build, and share their creations and ideas with one another? It’s called the Maker Movement! I was created to make, and I love to help people become Makers.
In this book, we’re going to make stuff that will amaze and surprise you, make you see electricity in a different light, and, at the very least, put a smile on your face. That’s because the projects are flat out fun! Along the way, you may even learn a few things that will help you in your science classes and maybe lead you to a career someday as an inventor, engineer, or scientist.
You don’t have to read the whole book from cover to cover before you start making, but it’s best to read each project all the way through before you start on it to be sure you know where you’re going. I like to do the projects in order because they get a bit more complicated as the book goes along.
Let’s get making!

Prior to this, he was director of product development at Make: magazine and a member of the Make: Technical Advisory board. He has written numerous posts and articles on do-it-yourself science and technology for Make:
Marc previously worked in fields as diverse as traditional metalsmith, illustrator, and 3D model maker. He thrives on the process of making and educating, with one of his greatest career accomplishments the implementation of Maker Faire's Learn to Solder program, which taught more than 10,000 people a lifelong skill.

This comic book has an emphasis on electrical safety including never playing with wall outlets, and only using small batteries. I like how it shows how to make a battery with items such as pennies, cardboard, and vinegar, as well as other simple electrical projects to learn electrical fundamentals with magnets.
Even adults will learn something new while reading along. This book is perfect for your next science exhibit, and the best way to safely learn how to use electricity by making simple things. This comic book takes a hands-on approach to learning.
Please take a look inside this comic book, because it has some required household materials to complete the projects including: safety glasses, sandpaper, scissors, paper towels, small cups, vinegar, duct tape, LEDs, ruler, needle nose pliers with wire cutters, craft sticks, rubber bands, battery # CR2032, cereal box, hot glue gun, index cards, magnet wire or enameled 30 ga copper wire, earphones, clear tape, 3 neodymium disc magnets, solid copper wire, 1-inch wood screw, AA battery, magnet or 22 ga enamel coated copper wire, & safety pins.
Have fun making new things with DC electricity and magnets. :D
