Models play an important role in engineering - they are used to test and improve designs. Readers will learn how engineers use different kinds of models and identify how a model and its subject are alike and how they are different.
Most people try to avoid problems, but not engineers! They go out and look for problems! In this fun, new title readers will learn about the kinds of problems engineers help solve. Readers are also introduced to the tool engineers use to solve problems - the Engineering Design Process.
Engineers know that there is always more than one possible solution to a problem! This interesting title uses accessible text and relatable examples to explain how engineers test and compare different solutions to determine which solution is best.
From video games and sports equipment, to cars and cleaning products, many of the things we use everyday were designed by engineers. This exciting title incorporates child-centered examples and engaging text to capture the readers attention as they explore the connections between engineering, science, and technology, and discover how engineering impacts our day-to-day lives.
From sound effects in video games and movies to surround-sound theatres, this fact-filled book explores the many ways audio engineers apply the science of sound. Readers will explore how sound travels and the characteristics of sound waves. Readers will also learn how to combine their understanding of sound science and the engineering design process to tackle a design challenge of their own.
