Everyday STEM Engineering – Civil Engineering

Price  450.00
Discover how engineering is part of our daily lives with Everyday STEM Engineering: Civil Engineering. Engineering is all around us, from the roads on which we travel to buildings and structures. It's even in space! Discover how civil and mechanical engineering helps us interact with society, witness how engineering is helping save the environment, and meet the engineers whose designs continue to make our lives easier. A "try this at home" section shows readers how to create a building made out of spaghetti, plus much more. With easy-to-understand text written by Jenny Jacoby, fun callouts and lots of colourful artworks, photos and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter engineering and why it’s even important at all. The Everyday STEM series makes science relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their “future success,” these books show readers how we use science, technology, engineering and maths in our everyday lives. While the topics sound high-level and complex, this series makes these concepts age-appropriate and accessible. So, while we can’t promise to teach 9 to 11-year-olds quantum physics, we can explain in the simplest terms the purpose of, and practical applications for, STEM.
