Nick and Tesla are bright 11-year-old siblings with a knack for science, electronics, and getting into trouble. When their parents mysteriously vanish, they're sent to live with their Uncle Newt, a brilliant inventor who engineers top-secret gadgets for a classified government agency. It's not long before Nick and Tesla are embarking on adventures of their own--engineering all kinds of outrageous MacGyverish contraptions to save their skin: 9-volt burglar alarms, electromagnets, mobile tracking devices, and more. Readers are invited to join in the fun as each story contains instructions and blueprints for five different projects.

Innbsp; Nick and Tesla's High-Voltage Danger Lab , we meet the characters and learn how to make everything fromnbsp;rocket launchers to soda-powered vehicles. Learning about science has never been so dangerous--or so much fun!

Great mystery and great inventions!

"While spending the summer with their quirky inventor uncle, twin brother and sister Nick and Tesla are caught up in a bizarre mystery surrounding a spooky, rottweiler-guarded mansion. To get inside the mansion and uncover the truth, the siblings create lots of clever gadgets (like an alarm made from Christmas lights and a "robocat" fuelled by mints and soda) - and each awesome invention is accompanied by illustrated instructions so that you can build them yourself!"
