Written by Emily Pilloton, Girls Garage: How to Use Any Tool, Tackle Any Project, and Build the World You Want to See is a 300-page compendium of all things building for fearless builder girls ages 14 and up. From hundreds of tools to essential skills (how to change a flat tire!), building projects, and profiles of inspiring women, Girls Garage hopes to inspire generations of girls and women for years to come.
Girls Garage is the only book you'll ever need for a lifetime of building and repair. Packed with over 175 illustrated tool guides, 11 how-to projects, 21 essential skills, and 15 inspiring stories from real-world builder girls and women, Girls Garage will inspire you to fill up your toolbox and get building! With a background in architecture and construction, Emily Pilloton started the nonprofit Girls Garage to give girls the tools to build the world they want to see. Since 2013, girls ages 9-18 have come to Girls Garage’s workshop eager to use power tools and build real-world projects for their community. The Girls Garage book puts that same power into girls' hands around the world, inviting them to join a thriving, diverse, and fierce movement of fearless builder girls.
