These educational gamebooks, designed by Byron Preiss, the team also responsible for the Be an Interplanetary Spy and Time Machine series, cast the reader as an "explorer" who participates in scientific adventures like shrinking and traveling through a human body or investigating natural resources on the moons of Jupiter. The books are a bit more whimsical than the Time Machine series and offer the possibility of failure, but they are otherwise fairly similar.
