Why are so many kids (and adults) like you bored by science? Simple: youæ³e had no real contact with it. You might read about incredibly expensive scientific projects, but your hands-on experience is probably limited to the same tired experimentsæ¢ike baking soda and vinegar æolcanoes.?Not any longer. Make Magazineæ¯ æunk Science?issue (volume 31) shows you how you can become a real, cutting-edge amateur scientist.
Find out how high school and college students can get an introduction to modern biology research through affordable biotech labs provided by Otyp, a small Michigan-based biotechnology company. And learn how a cooperative network of schools and research groups, called PEER, enables students to learn science by working on real projects with people in the fieldæ¢ncluding the DECA (Distributed Electronic Cosmic-Ray) Observatory that uses Android phones to generate a real-time cosmic-ray flux map of a large area.
This issue also shows you how to create these fascinating projects on your own:
RoboRoachæ¡½urgically modify a cockroach with a wireless electronic circuit so that you can control it to turn left or right by micro-stimulating its antenna nerves.
Lord Kelvinæ¯ Thunderstormæ¢ little-known, classic science experiment that generates high-voltage æightning?sparks by dripping water through metal rings.
An automatic Ball/Toy Launcher for Dogs that will keep your pet entertained and exercised while youæ®e away.
