Geek Dad book giveaway

Geek Dad book giveaway


Gotham Books has generously given us three copies of Ken Denmead’s wonderful Geek Dad: Awesomely Geeky Projects and Activities for Dads and Kids to Share. We think this is a perfect giveaway for our MAKEcation theme.

To be eligible, all you have to do is tell us what geeky projects you’re doing with your kids this summer, or what projects you’d like to do with them. Brownie points for sharing pics in the MAKE Flickr pool. It won’t impact the drawing, but we might use them in a follow-up post here on the site.

The entry deadline is Wednesday, August 25, midnight PDT. Winners will be announced on Thursday morning. Good luck!

Update: And the winners are:

Andy Johnson

Congrats! Please email me your mailing addresses and I’ll have the books sent to you.
