These 101 projects teach the leaders of tomorrow how to be creative‚ inspiring‚ questioning and prepared for any challenge. The pieces range from fun with science and nature‚ to feats of endurance‚ to lessons in civic responsibility. These include navigating with the stars‚ telling time without a watch‚ predicting the weather from flying a homemade kite‚ running a marathon‚ planning and leading an expedition‚ and presenting eco-friendly proposals to city planners.
Weise hopes this book inspires the same feeling that moved Thoreau to write: "Life is not the sum total of the material possessions we amass‚ but the sum total of the experiences we have and the memories we make." How to Start a Fire Without Matches is the tinder that will ignite the flames of creativity and understanding of the natural world.
