Lance Akiyama

Author Lance Akiyama combines tinkering and education into a single aspiration: to create a better world by inspiring the next generation of innovators with exciting hands-on projects. He has created project-based learning tutorials on Instructables.com, started an after-school engineering service, and is currently employed as a STEM-based curriculum developer for Galileo Learning. Lance spends his free time designing elaborate plans for advanced contraptions, keeping journals in cryptic backwards writing, and attempting to fly by strapping paper wings to his arms and leaping from rooftops. He lives in the San Francisco Bay area. Lance Akiyama is the author of Rubber Band Engineer (2016), Duct Tape Engineer (2017), and the forthcoming 2018 book DIY Ballistics Engineer--all from Rockport Publishers.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Unless you are a die hard do it yourselfer type, this can be really challenging. While my family was excited to learn the things you can make with duct tape we were equally disappointed with the amount of time, energy, process and materials needed.  It would also cost a small fortune in duct tape to execute these plans.
