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.
