Review by Publisher Summary 2

Engineering combines applied science, math, and technology for the purpose of designing a wide variety of items, including structures, materials, processes, and machines. Engineers may choose to specialize in aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, computer engineering, genetic engineering, software engineering, nanotechnology, and molecular engineering, with new fields emerging as technology advances. Engineering Science Experiments explores the different fields of engineering through experiments that allow students to build, explore, test, question, and design. From constructing a suspension bridge to creating a hovercraft, these easy-to-follow activities allow young engineers to discover this scientific discipline in a hands-on way.Experiments include:Investigating What Engineers DoBuilding and Testing a Suspension BridgeUsing Arches to Design and Construct a TunnelBuilding an Earthquake-Proof StructureDesigning a ParachuteCreating a Full-Size HovercraftBuilding an IglooBuilding a SkyscraperTesting the Durability of Different Building MaterialsTesting the Effectiveness of Sound BarriersAnd more.
