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.
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.
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.
Civil engineering is one of the oldest engineering fields. Civil engineers are involved in the design and construction of various structures, including high-rise buildings, sports stadiums, canals, dams, and bridges. This book gives readers a up-close look at the technology used to build various structures around the world, including the ancient pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge, and modern skyscrapers. Readers learn about the design process and tools used by civil engineers and are guided through a design challenge to create their own stable structures.
Electrical engineering employs the largest number of engineers. This field of engineering covers everything related to electrical devices, systems, and the uses of electricity. This innovative book gives readers insight into this exciting profession and includes information on pioneers in the world of electricity, new technologies, and innovations. Budding engineers are introduced to the basic concepts of electronic circuitry and learn to build their own electric circuits.
This engaging and informative book explores the science of simple machines and how it relates to the exciting field of mechanical engineering. Readers will learn how mechanical engineers design and innovate machines we use every day. Readers then apply the engineering design process to tackle a design challenge of their own.
