Engineering Our World:How a Car is Made
Automobiles are an essential part of life for many, but few really understand how that car arrives in their garage in the first place. This book takes an exciting look at just how interesting that process is, from the design phase in an engineer's office to the floor of a factory where it is assembled piece by piece by both people and machines. Full-color photographs bring the process to life in vivid detail, and a step-by-step how-to guide explains how readers can even build their very own model car.
This full-color illustrated series introduces young readers to the ways engineers and designers help shape the world. From the design characteristics of buildings and bridges to that of modern computers and modes of transportation, this series presents young learners with a fascinating glimpse into how things are made. Each book includes a helpful glossary, recommendations for further reading, and at least one hands-on project that can be completed with simple household items. Visually captivating, these books will provide young readers with a greater appreciation for how engineers apply the principles of math and science to improve life on Earth. 8 ½”x 8 ½”. 24 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
