Description

This book is an ideal resource for
sparking students' interest in the marvels of engineering behind seemingly
simple items and events. Like Everyday
Engineering
, this new volume is based on the popular "Everyday Engineering"
column in NSTA's award-winning middle years journal, Science Scope. Thirteen activities focus
on three aspects of engineering: designing and building, reverse-engineering to
learn how something works and constructing and testing models. Students can
perform hands-on investigations of objects and phenomena they see all the time,
asking questions such as these:




  • What makes a wind-up toy
    get up and go?




  • How does an earbud
    operate?




  • Why does the line you're
    waiting in always seem the slowest?




Each activity includes a clear
explanation of the science and history behind the object's or phenomenon's
development, plus a materials list, student data sheets and safety suggestions.
The collection is useful for classroom teachers, as well as engineers leading
outreach activities, leaders of after-school and summer enrichment programs and
parents. More Everyday Engineering will
have your students taking a number of things apart while they develop a lifelong
interest in engineering.
