Jolene Cookbook

If you are looking for an awesome project for a science or art class, or would like to try something different with your scout group, take a look at this. It is a 'cookbook' that shows you how to make your very own 'sound level measurement mannequin'. Jolene was designed by a student and is the first of her kind, so the cookbook is named after her. The Jolene Cookbook is available as a FREE download!

We can testify that this is the real deal. We made Shocque by using this cookbook and boy, does she get attention!
