Everyday STEM Engineering: Chemical Engineering - Kingfisher
Discover how chemical engineering affects our daily lives with Everyday STEM Engineering — Chemical Engineering, filled with facts, stories and experiments to try at home!
Explore all about this fascinating side of engineering: what is involved, where we see it and how it is used. The experiments carried out in laboratories away from our eyes have a huge impact on our lives, and create advances in medicine, food, biomechanics and surgery. From vaccinations created for devastating diseases and viruses (including COVID) to research on low-impact ways to feed a growing population. Plus, meet the engineers and scientists whose discoveries are changing our lives for the better, including Tu youyou, Merkus Rehm and Jamie Garcia.
With easy-to-understand text written by Jenny Jacoby, fun callouts and lots of colourful artworks, photos, and diagrams.
The Everyday STEM series makes science relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their “future success,” these books show readers how we use science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in our everyday lives. While the topics sound high-level and complex, this series makes these concepts age-appropriate and accessible. So, while we can’t promise to teach 9 to 11-year-olds quantum physics, we can explain in the simplest terms the purpose of, and practical applications for, STEM.
