9781936749515: Bridges and Tunnels: Investigate Feats of Engineering with 25 Projects (Build It Yourself)

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 Newton’s 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.

Review:

Winner of a 2012 Gold Moonbeam Award
The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
". . .This book would be a wonderful addition to a physics curriculum, for unit studies, or delight-directed learning. It would also be a fun enrichment book for a co-op or small homeschool group. If you want to explore famous bridges and tunnels, engineering, science, physics, and history, Bridges and Tunnels: Investigate Feats of Engineering is a great resource."

National Science Teachers Association Recommends]
"This book is a treasure trove of information, experiments, and building challenges, and is an excellent, exciting, and easy way to incorporate STEM education into your classroom, science fair, or after school engineering club."

Erin Slayton, K 12 Outreach Chair, American Society of Civil Engineers
Bridges and Tunnels provides an interesting overview of the world of Civil Engineering from the perspective of these two fascinating types of structures. Kids will find the activities in the book challenging and engaging, all the while reinforcing the learning objectives. Civil Engineering is an exciting profession, and Bridges and Tunnels presents it to kids in a way that is fun and approachable.”

Book Description Softcover. Book Condition: New. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 5571383
