About the Author:

Tammy Enz became a civil engineer because of her awe of the massive steel bridges that spanned the Mississippi River. She just had to figure out how they worked. Today, she still likes tinkering and figuring out how things work. When she isn't tinkering, she fixes up old houses and conducts experiments in her garden and kitchen. Most of all, she loves reading books about anything and everything and asking 'why?'

From Booklist:

“It’s fun, it’s free, and it’s green!” This title in the Invent It series focuses on using basic engineering skills—and your own imagination—to repurpose garbage. After leading readers through the “Six Steps of Inventing,” the book offers step-by-step numbered instructions for seven do-it-yourself projects. What to do with that old cell phone lying around? You can use the vibrating motor to make a small buglike robot. Plastic shopping bags may transform into a colorful rain poncho, while out-of-date textbooks serve as a hollowed-out hiding place for money and other valuables. These are not the simplest projects, and they require adult supervision at times, as well as careful measurement. While some reconfigurations might seem random (like turning plastic 8-pack soda rings into a lawn chair seat), they can serve as jumping-off points for further projects. In fact, additional ideas are provided throughout—for instance, in the case of the poncho, shopping bags can also be recycled into a school bag or tent (no instructions provided). The projects will likely fire up imaginations and encourage eco responsibility. Grades 3-6. --Ann Kelley
