"Dad, thanks for bringing me up as a building, thinking, tinkering kid!" Start your Father's Day celebration a day early with ultra-cool projects and a great community of makers. Our Father's Day Maker Day is in conjunction with WIRED's own GeekDad. "Raising Geek Generation 2.0"

      DIY Rocket Launcher - Build a colorful, durable rocket launcher and as many rockets as you have sheets of paper. These beauties shoot 200ft in the air! Powerful, safe, fun! 

        Folding-Wing Glider - Shoot your plane up to 60 feet in the air, then watch the wings swivel out and bring this plane to a smooth landing. Customize the wings with laser-etched graphics.

        Rubber-Band Powered Car - An oldie and a goodie. Design your car with your choice of wheels and laser-etched designs, not to mention stickers and markers -- then race your friends!
