In each volume of MAKE we have “major projects” these project pages are meaty step-by-step articles with start-to-finish photos, precise instructions and how-to learning that can range from making a VCR cat feeder to ariel kite photography. In MAKE volume 05 the projects are:

Soda Bottle Rocket by Steve Lodefink. You don’t have to be Burt Rutan to start your own rocket program. With a few empty soda bottles and some PVC pipe, you can build a high-performance water rocket. Page 78

Wind Powered Generatorby Abe and Josie Connally. With a motor and some piping, it’s suprisingly easy to build this inexpensive, efficient windmill generator–and enjoy free energy forever. Page 90

The Jam Jar Jet by William Gurstelle. Don’t think you can build a jet engine at home? Here’s a simple jet engine–a pulsejet–that you can make out of a jam jar in an afternoon. All it takes is bending some wire and punching a few holes. Page 102
