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.
Fun Fun Fun. Love Nick and Tesla. They are 11 year old twins who use science to solve all their problems. They get into some scraps! They are sent to live with their eccentric uncle (a retired NASA scientist) while their parents are (supposedly) in Uzbekistan to help with soybean (not sure about that- we think they are on a secret mission for the government). They link up with a couple of new friends and solve strange crimes. In this book, a young girl is seen in the window of an old abandoned house, why is she there? Is she in trouble? Who are the two mean guys keeping her locked up in the house?
5 stars for this series.
