Here's an ideal way to spark students' fascination with the marvels of engineering behind the seemingly simple. This book is a compilation of popular qEveryday Engineeringq columns from NSTA's middle school journal, Science Scope. The collection is made up of 14 activities that explore engineering's role in five areas: the office, the kitchen, the bathroom, electricity, and outdoor recreation. Students can perform hands-on investigations of objects they use all the time, asking questions such as: What makes a Bic click? Why do squirt guns squirt? What make a better cereal box? Each activity includes a clear explantion of the science and history behind the object's development plus a materials list, student data sheets, and safety suggestions. The collection is useful to classroom teachers as well as scout leaders, engineers leading outreach activities, after-school and summer enrichment program staff, and parents. Everyday Engineering may soon have your students taking a number of things apart, and putting together a lifelong interest in engineering.Kellogg, W.
