Make: Magazine, Volume 31 - Print
Why are so many kids (and adults) like you bored by science? Simple: youve had no real contact with it. You might read about incredibly expensive scientific projects, but your hands-on experience is probably limited to the same tired experimentslike baking soda and vinegar "volcanoes." Not any longer.
Make: magazine, Volume 31 Punk Science shows you how you can become a real, cutting-edge amateur scientist. Find out how high school and college students can get an introduction to modern biology research through affordable biotech labs provided by Otyp, a small Michigan-based biotechnology company. And learn how a cooperative network of schools and research groups, called PEER, enables students to learn science by working on real projects with people in the fieldincluding the DECA (Distributed Electronic Cosmic-Ray) Observatory that uses Android phones to generate a real-time cosmic-ray flux map of a large area.
This issue also shows you how to create these fascinating projects on your own:
