Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bridges and tunnels are lifelines

People have tackled seemingly insurmountable obstacles, including vast canyons and mountain ranges, to design and construct these amazing passageways. Bridges and Tunnels: Investigate Feats of Engineering invites children ages 9 and up to explore the innovation and physical science behind structures our world depends on.

Trivia and fun facts illustrate engineering ingenuity and achievements. Activities and projects encourage children to learn about the engineering process and to embrace trial and error. Children will engage in a hands-on exploration of Newtons Third Law of Motion and of forces that push and pull on structures. They'll make an egg bungee jump and a soda pop can engine. They'll experiment with a triangular toothpick dome, liquefaction, and corrosion. In Bridges and Tunnels: Investigate Feats of Engineering, children will explore their own engineering and building skills as they create several bridge models.

Synopsis:

Exploring the innovation and physical science behind bridges and tunnels, the activities and projects in this book encourage children to learn about the design and construction of these amazing passageways. This fun and educational reference uses hands-on projects to explain complex concepts, such as Newton's Third Law of Motion, while trivia and fun facts illustrate engineering ingenuity and achievements. The activities engage kids in the important skills involved in engineering—including designing, building, and modeling—and teach the value of trial and error as they create several bridge models. Activities include making an egg bungee jump, a soda pop can engine, and a triangular toothpick dome, as well as experiments with liquefaction and corrosion.
