Volcano by Margie McDonald

"At six years of age, Pete [Trench] had entered a science fair with The Scrammer, a contrivance he put together to scramble eggs at the flip of a switch. He meant the name to be The Scrambler, but couldn’t fully enunciate the word, and his mother found his childlike pronunciation endearing, so the Scrammer moniker stuck. Employing a turntable, reflex hammer, flare, pie tin, and paint-can-shaker – along with a series of levers, gears, and pulleys – his creation was a cinch to win the fair’s coveted Gold Volcano trophy along with a two-year subscription to a moralistic science-themed comic book series for kids."
