Cheerios Shows Us How to Dad

Geeky science experiments, geeky contraptions, crafts that only geeks can fully appreciate – Geek Dad is light years ahead of books on intelligent fun. Techie parents everywhere are charged about these geeky DIY projects to share with their young geeks in training.

Every geek father hopes that somewhere along the way his protege discovers that dad’s geekiness is no less than the square root of genius.

Good laughs and fresh family bonds are bound to happen over this off-the-wall project book. Eager geek dads and curious kids open the book and marvel together at all the geeky, unconventional uses of science and technology. Chock full of activities that pull your clever inner child out of the norm, send your mind spinning off the beaten track, chase your creativity far outside the lines, and take the techie in you to task.

No matter where your kids fall on the scale of geekiness, they’ll fall head over heels for the zany content. It’s a lighthearted read, yet heavy on substance. So well done, so appealing to today’s dads of the digital age, it’s headed for serious geek accolades.

Created by a well-known supergeek and father of two, Ken Denmead is an engineer and editor of GeekDad, on wired.com. This guy gets being a geek. He knows the importance of the right illustrations, brilliant antics, a step-by-step format, and adapting to any timeframe or budget.
