Zoom in on Engineering

Age Level: 5–9  Grade Level: K–4

Focusing on the infrastructure that helps us get things done, this series exposes readers to the inner-workings of how we get from point A to point B and how we move things around (such as electricity, supplies, and water). It supports the Next Generation Science Standards by discussing how each system or structure was developed to solve a problem and improve people’s lives as well as how it has changed over time. Each chapter will focus on one important element of the engineering topic, including inventors, advances in technology, its history, and its greater purpose in society today.
