Nick and Tesla are bright 11-year-old siblings with a knack for science, electronics, and getting into trouble. When their parents mysteriously vanish, they’re sent to live with their Uncle Newt, a brilliant inventor who engineers top-secret gadgets for a classified government agency. It’s not long before Nick and Tesla are embarking on adventures of their own—engineering all kinds of outrageous MacGyverish contraptions to save their skin: 9-volt burglar alarms, electromagnets, mobile tracking devices, and more. Readers are invited to join in the fun as each story contains instructions and blueprints for five different projects.

In Nick and Tesla’s High-Voltage Danger Lab, we meet the characters and learn how to make everything from rocket launchers to soda-powered vehicles. Learning about science has never been so dangerous—or so much fun!

This book is a great addition to this awesome mystery story series and the thing I love most?.... is when nick and tesla's parents go missing! This is a awesome book and definitely a five star!!!! :)

I am currently reading this book along with others and Nick and Tesla are some of the coolest kids ever. They are super smart and get to experience the craziest things. I have read other Nick and Tesla books and I really liked the one about the gadget glove. I can't wait to read more.

i honestly loved this book because of the story and the gadgets you could build yourself.So basically Nick and Tesla's parents vanish so they have to live with their Uncle Newt who is an inventor works for the government.Definitely recommend.

I enjoyed reading this book! The best thing about it is that the book is relatable, but exciting and fun. I loved how there were different experiments to try out!

This book is like a lot of the other Geronimo Stilton books. If you like one Geronimo Stilton book then you'll probably like this one too.

This book was a lot of fun to read. It has some really cool experiments that I am trying to convince my Dad to help me with. I think we might be able to do some, which is really cool The story is really good too.

This is a really fun book with little mysteries inside a big mystery. I also like how the author included the instructions and blueprints for five different projects. Learning about science is more fun than I expected it would be.

This is about two kids whose names are Nick and Tesla. They're sent to their uncle because their parents have gone away to study soybeans. They played around and built a rocket. In that process Tesla loses her necklace that her parents gave to her. That happens to a big chain reaction. Nick sees a girl upstairs with a pale face staring at him. They use gadgets to help the girl escape from being kidnapped. When they get surrounded by Frank and Vince, the kidnappers, someone comes out of the black SUV looking for them. It turns out that she is agent McIntyre. They think later that their parents aren't away to watch soybeans grow anymore.

I love this book. It is amazing. It has a story with a great plot and also it has very fun/ cool/ amazing experiments that I love to do. Overall. I recommend this book and I love this book.

this is a cool mystery with lots of awesome projects to do your self. I loved the creative story and i cant wait to try out all the experiments. This is sort of like an educational book, but one you can actually enjoy.
