Ever wanted to move things without touching them like a Jedi can? Or grow your own kyber crystal? Or maybe explode a balloon with a beam of energy, just like the Death Star? Now you can!

With 20 amazing projects, Star WarsTM Maker Lab teaches your budding Padawan how to become a Master of science, in both the real world and the Star Wars galaxy. Using clear step-by-step instructions, the book guides home scientists and makers through each exciting experiment - from making Jabba's gooey slime or a hovering landspeeder, to an Ewok catapult and a glowing Gungan Globe of Peace. Each project has fact-filled panels to explain the real-world science as well as the Star Wars science fiction from the movies.

With projects that are out of this world, this fantastic Star Wars book can keep children entertained for hours, making use of many household items such as cardboard tubes, baking soda, straws, balloons, and food coloring. There is also plenty to keep more adventurous scientists enthralled, with instructions to create your own bristlebot mouse droid, lightsaber duel, and Mustafar volcano. Star Wars Maker Lab supports STREAM topics and helps children to learn the basics of science by traveling through the Star Wars galaxy. May the (static) force be with you!

I thought this was a fantastic book for any Star Wars fan. Firstly it’s a strong hard back and the illustrations are great, bright and colourful, full of detail. The content shows all different things you can make, some easier than others but all of great detail. My son is very creative and loves art, and he really enjoyed this book. Would highly recommend and a book that will be used over and over again.

This is an excellent book. It has loads of science projects, with an explanation of how it works which are all based around star wars. Some of the projects can be done with stuff around the house and some are more complicated. This is perfect as it will grow with my child and makes them more challenging and exciting.

I love star wars, so couldn't wait to look at this book, to see what things I could make. It has a contents page, so you can skip to things you are interested in making. There is lots of variety, some things easier, that tou can do with household items, some more difficult, that you will have to buy things for. Some things I have made before, like the volcano, and there were some things I wouldn't want to make. But that's the beauty of this book, you make what you want from it. Some things I could do on my own, but some I would need help with. I have done the kyber crystals, as we had everything you needed all ready in the house. That was fun, and one I will probably do again. I also did the jabba slime, and my little sister joined in. My little sister has also done some things from the book with my mom. There is plenty to try out. I definitely want to do the light saber duel. The instructions are easy to follow, and the diagrams are very helpful. This is a book that will be used over and over again

This book is amazing, So many great ideas. Some look very easy to do others may take a bit of time but will look great. Me and my brother are both Star Wars fans so this is brilliant for us. Easy to follow instructions. Very good pictures as well.

I think this book is really good because I will have so much fun making all the different things in it. You can make your own Star Wars builds like Kyber Crystals and BB Units. I can't wait to create my own invisible force and an R2-D2 Holoprojector. They both look really cool. There are lots of photos to help you make the builds and there are lots of photos from the Star Wars films. The book made me feel like an inventor who could create lots of fun things. I love this book.

There are lots of excellent activities here to occupy a Star Wars fan over the Summer holidays. Some look easier than others. Some activities I am rather unsure about. My son wants to have a go at the Galactic Planets. However, I am unsure about hard boiling eggs just for this purpose. We have had a go at the Mustafar  Volcano using Baking soda. Reasonably successfully and time consuming. I think the Super Speeder Bike is next on the cards. (Templates are at the back of the book.) What I like about this book is the clear explanations, Star Wars and Science (basic) facts and colourful imagery. We would both recommend this book.

This book had lots of fun and exciting science experiments which were throughly enjoyed by Hanna and Jawariyah both. The book itself is aimed for children aged 8 and above and many, if not all, of the experiments will need an adult to be involved. I liked that the book had difficulty ratings with the activities as that helped me to make a decision on which to pick. Both girls and boys can enjoy these activities and experiments.
