By Anna Claybourne
Craft meets STEAM in these lively books
Get ready to build your very own space centre! From rockets and rocket launchers to a Mars rover and a night sky projector, the step-by-step projects will give you all the instructions you need to make every element a model space centre needs. Learn about principles of design and engineering as well as craft techniques to unleash your creativity!
Every project has been designed to work using things you can find lying around at home, like disposable containers and packaging, and basic art and craft equipment.
Why not check out the other books in the Maker Models series? Each book focuses on a building and will go through creating various parts of the structure. You could learn to make a castle and its grounds, a fairground, a transport hub, a mini-garden and biosphere or a theatre and film set and all the elements that constitute them.
For children aged 9+, this illustrated series will be great for rainy days and science days and a good inspiration for DT classes and clubs.
