In this third installment, 11-year-old wiz-kids Nick and Tesla discover that someone in the quiet town of Half Moon Bay has placed their beloved Uncle Newt under electronic surveillance. To expose the secret agent, Nick and Tesla must engineer all kinds of outrageous contraptions, from code wheels and fingerprint powder to spy cameras and burglar detectors. Best of all, instructions are included throughout the story, so you can build the projects, too!
Nick and Tesla's Super-Cyborg Gadget Glove
“Authors “Science Bob” Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith have crafted an action-filled story that pulses with kid humor.”—Georgia Times-Union

With the mystery of the spy's identity solved, the kids face a whole new crop of questions about their parents' mysterious disappearance. To unravel the mystery, they'll have to come up with all-new cyborg gadgets together with their zany scientist Uncle Newt and their friends Silas and DeMarco. In this book, readers will learn how to construct a super-cyborg gadget glove that has four incredible functions: LED signal light, ultra-loud emergency alarm, handy sound recorder, and UV secret message revealer.
Nick and Tesla's Special Effects Spectacular

Fresh off their last case at the museum, Nick and Tesla — with the help of their zany scientist Uncle Newt and their friends Silas and DeMarco — must use do-it-yourself special effects and movie magic to prevent a Hollywood movie from shutting down production.
