Science has never been so much fun! The Boy Scientist offers all the vintage appeal of Popular Mechanics's popular Boy Mechanic series combined with daring adventures in the laboratory. Taken from the turn-of-the-twentieth-century issues of Popular Mechanics magazine, these 160 experiments-based on chemistry, math, and physics-carry on the Popular Mechanics's tradition of making science engaging and entertaining. And even though technology has changed, and our knowledge of how things work has grown, the underlying scientific principles behind these activities remain sound. The projects include constructing a homemade mariner's compass; microscope without a lens; telescopic rangefinder; figuring out the height of a tall tree with the help of the sun; magnetizing watches and metal tools; crystallizing minerals in the lab; and building a simple radio transmitting set. Plus, there are thought-provoking experiments with gravity, pressure, and vacuums, and information on carrying out all these activities safely. As always in the series, charming illustrations throughout add to the nostalgic appeal. This classic collection is the perfect gift for every budding young mad scientist!

This book takes the beginner through a comprehensive series of practical shop work, in which the uses of tools, and the structure and handling of shop machinery are set forth; how they are utilized to perform the work, and the manner in which all dimensional work is carried out. Every subject is illustrated, and model building explained. It contains a glossary which comprises a new system of cross references, a feature that will prove a welcome departure in explaining subjects. Fully illustrated.The American method of teaching the mechanical arts has some disadvantages, as compared with the apprentice system followed in England, and very largely on the continent.It is too often the case that here a boy or a young man begins work in a machine shop, not for the avowed purpose of learning the trade, but simply as a helper, with no other object in view than to get his weekly wages.Abroad, the plan is one which, for various reasons, could not be tolerated here. There he is bound for a certain term of years, and with the prime object of teaching him to become an artisan. More often than otherwise he pays for this privilege, and he knows it is incumbent on him "to make good" right from the start.He labors under the disadvantage, however, that he has a certain tenure, and in that course he is not pushed forward from one step to the next on account of any merit of his own. His advancement is fixed by the time he has put in at each part of the work, and thus no note is taken of his individuality.Here the boy rises step after step by virtue of his own qualifications, and we recognize that one boy has the capacity to learn faster than another. If he can learn in one year what it requires three in another to acquire, in order to do it as perfectly, it is an injury to the apt workman to be held back and deterred from making his way upwardly.It may be urged that the apprentice system instills thoroughness. This may be true; but it also does another thing: It makes the man a mere machine. The true workman is a thinker. He is ever on the alert to find easier, quicker and more efficient means for doing certain work.What is called "Efficiency" in labor methods, can never obtain in an apprenticeship system for this reason. In a certain operation, where twelve motions are required to do a certain thing, and a minute to perform the twelve operations, a simplified way, necessitating only eight motions, means a difference in saving one-third of the time. The nineteen hundred fewer particular movements in a day's work, being a less strain on the operator, both physically and mentally, to say nothing whatever of the advantages which the proprietor of the shop would gain.I make this a leading text in the presentation of this book; namely, that individual merit and stimulus is something of such extreme importance that it should be made the keynote for every boy who tries to become a mechanic.The machinist easily occupies a leading place in the multitude of trades and occupations. There is hardly an article of use but comes to the market through his hands. His labor is most diverse, and in his employment doing machine work he is called upon to do things which vary widely in their character.These require special knowledge, particular tools, and more frequently than otherwise, a high order of inventive ability to enable him to accomplish the task.The boy should be taught, at the outset, that certain things must be learned thoroughly, and that habits in a machine shop can be bad as well as good. When he once becomes accustomed to putting a tool back in its rightful place the moment he is through with it, he has taken a long step toward efficiency.When he grasps a tool and presents it to the work without turning it over several times, or has acquired the knack of picking up the right tool at the proper place, he is making strides in the direction of becoming a rapid and skilled workman.

The projects in Handy Projects for Boys first appeared in a major collection arranged by the editors of Popular Mechanics Press in 1913. During this time period, the methods and techniques used to create these items were just as important to the boys and men building them as the final projects themselves. They took care with their materials; they were precise and they labored over the smallest details. To know something was handcrafted was to know it was a quality piece. Because of the exactitude of the craftsmen's methods in the early 1900s, this historical and practical text features specific step-by-step instructions and includes many detailed illustrations for even the smallest or quickest jobs, including: Eskimo snow houses Box kites Boomerangs Chair sleighs Homemade roller skates Catapults Canoes And more More important than building the projects inside, this book offers fathers and sons, grandfathers and grandsons, and even uncles and nephews an opportunity to spend some time together, learn a bit about history, and produce fully functional pieces.
