"Each title in this series begins with a six step process for the budding engineer to follow; seven or eight projects follow the steps. While the statement of engineering principles is a positive, few middle school students will be able to state them without adult guidance. Full-color photos take the reader through the “create” step. The “improve” step lends itself to additional scientific or engineering processes and is a highlight of the series." - Library Media Connection Online

"It’s good to see engineering defined and explained in a book for both girls and boys. It’s an excellent summer reading book but extends to the school year, as projects could be done in classes with groups. The relationship of math, science, and technology is evident and practical. What a great way to interest readers in STEM!" - Simply Science blog

"Author Enz is a civil engineer, and her experience shows in the details in each of the projects. . . .Build It: Invent New Structures and Contraptions would be great for a busy teacher looking for a quick science or engineering project because it has complete and detailed plans. It would also be fun for the home inventor who could build the project as presented and then use the skills he or she learned to tweak the design or come with up with a whole new invention." - Growing with Science blog

Color photos show each step clearly, with troubleshooting tips and ideas for further exploration. The use of common household supplies and clear objectives for each creation make this an especially accessible project book." - School Library Journal, "What's the Big Idea?" (Focus On: Inventions)
