The Engineering Project by William Taylor. This is a great book for kids that shows you how to build projects from hundreds of different engineering principles. I chose this book for my elementary teacher and it was perfect for middle school. There are many activities for kids to see how the various principles are applied in their own room or around their own home! This book is also a great book to help kids understand the meaning of mechanical engineering.
To Be Strong by Angela Thomas. This is a fantastic picture book for kids that covers a wide range of topics from strength to math to science. There's a story, a true life engineering example, and a math lesson for each page. I think this book will really help children understand their strength and how to work with it. (I did not receive a copy of this book for review, but have seen it in the classroom.)
How To Be A Princess by Donna Ward. This is the story of an engineer who gets in trouble for breaking into a science lab to investigate a mystery. In the process, he ends up teaching the children how to be engineers themselves. I love the message of this book!
Fun! Fun! Fun! by Dan Santat. A lighthearted look at math through the lens of the hilarious adventures of a young person and their toy robot. Kids will love the games and the simple explanations. I love the way Dan Santat integrates fun and math together in his books!
Most books and websites on engineering and STEM fields focus on the importance of engineering in our daily lives. I think that's good, but they also need to help kids understand the importance of the engineering aspects of our children's lives. For example, how often do you hear the following?
The Physics of the Great Barrier Reef: A Robotic Project by Jennifer Baker. This book explores how the Great Barrier Reef creates wave action, and how physics and engineering can explain both the vertical structure of the reef, and the ebb and flow of the oceanic environment. This is a definite must have for STEM, history, and geography buffs.
I am running a PC with Windows 7 and Adobe Photoshop CS6. I am wondering how to end the trial period and convert to a full copy of Photoshop CS6. I tried closing down Photoshop, which produced a message telling me to return the disk. I did that, but the same message returned. How can I end this?
