Intro to Engineering welcomes children to the field of engineering with 21 experiments and building projects in five sections. By engaging in hands-on activities, children will learn how engineers apply their scientific and technical knowledge to design machines and devices.
*Start by learning some engineering basics with experiments on levers, forces, and pulleys. Build simple devices using these basic components.
*Move on to explore engineering on land by building vehicles with wheels, such as a race car and a wind-up car. Next, investigate engineering with air (and in the air) by building a helicopter, a parachute, a glider, and an air-powered carousel. Then, build a diving bell, a sailboat, and a paddle boat to experiment with engineering in water.
*Finally, find engineering in your own home with experiments modeling the telephone and television. Make a funny robot model.
*With a 48-page guidebook, Intro to Engineering teaches engineering fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments and building projects. 2010 Parents' Choice Recommended Award.
