Engineering helps shape the world around us, from the houses and cities we live in, to the way we travel, and even the sound of the music we listen to. Lift the flaps in this fascinating book to discover how engineering works and the many things engineers do. Includes internet links to find out more. Published for the 2018 Year of Engineering.
"Engineering is not just about engines. Engineering means designing, testing and making all kinds of useful things. To do this, engineers use mathematics, science and - above all - their imaginations."
This is an absolutely gorgeous hardback book with beautiful illustrations and as you would expect, thoroughly researched text from Usborne. As well as a general introduction to Engineering, there are also sections on Flight, Space, Gadgets, Robots and more. And there are literally hundreds of flaps to help you understand what is going on beneath the surface. Highly Recommended.
