The Story Behind Boing-Boing

Practical Science for Kids Made Fun!

When Larry Hench became a grandfather, he started looking for books to read to his grandchildren that taught science concepts in a fun and interesting way, without talking down, through stories that were realistic-not fairytale-like. He couldn’t find them; he was also dismayed to see scientists, professors, and engineers portrayed as evil, nutty, nerdy, absent-minded, etc...not as real, caring, helpful human beings. Larry wanted children to see the excitement and process of science, and scientists and engineers as trustworthy, interesting, and fun people. So he decided to write his own stories to accomplish these goals. Enter Boing-Boing!
