From sound effects in video games and movies to surround-sound theatres, this fact-filled book explores the many ways audio engineers apply the science of sound. Readers will explore how sound travels and the characteristics of sound waves. Readers will also learn how to combine their understanding of sound science and the engineering design process to tackle a design challenge of their own. From Booklist: Books in the Engineering in Action series provide broad introductions to their respective fields in a colorfully illustrated, large-format package. A typical, rather crowded double-page spread presents a specified topic and illustrates it with two or three small photos. (Example: one ongoing theme running through many of the books is an engineer’s approach to problem solving and collaborating on projects.) The main text is augmented with related information in boxes designed to look like yellow sticky notes. While job possibilities in the field are discussed, educational requirements for various careers are not. Each book includes a design challenge that leads readers through the steps of a project such as creating a sound track, fire extinguisher, desalination device, or periscope. Audio tackles the science of sound and hearing, the differences between analog and digital signals, and the varied work of audio engineers. Solid information for engineering-minded students. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

A fun, quirky look at the weird and wonderful side of physics, Can You Feel the Force? explores the physics of everyday things — from how balloons stretch and stick to walls, to why the sky is blue, to why stars twinkle. Designed to appeal equally to children who are intimidated by science and those who love it, Can you Feel the Force? is not just a reference book — it's interactive with fun activities to try at home. Inside the pages are age appropriate text and experiments that will determine what's the best seat on a roller coaster, why does bubble gum stretch, why do fighter pilots have to wear specially tightened underwear, and why the world looks weird when you drive a car at the speed of light. Discover the recipe for slime, the secret of piercing a balloon without bursting it, and find out how to stick objects together with nothing but the magical force of friction; plus learn the ideas and discoveries of Galileo, Newton, Franklin and other key players in the defining principles and laws of physics. Clear, exciting images and engaging text will make physics understandable and make kids curious to learn more in Can you Feel the Force?

Discusses the properties of matter and describes how to tell the difference between materials that absorb liquid and those that repel it. From School Library Journal: K-Gr 1—These introductions to science cover the most basic of information in ways that young readers will find easy and fun. Colorful designs with a large, readable font and tons of fun photos featuring young children in action are easy on the eyes, while the content is broken down into bite-size portions, ideal for those new to such concepts as density or absorpency. The titles all start off the same way: with a brief definition of "matter," "mass," and "property." Concise explanations ("Matter is anything that takes up space and has mass"; "Mass is the amount of material in an object") are ideal for readers with a limited science background. Short and sweet, these are solid overviews. "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Earth has a limited supply of fossil fuels, and in the near future this supply will come to an end. However, more people live on the planet than ever in its historyand they all need energy. One of the ways in which we can meet this increasing demand for energy is through nuclear power. Nuclear power stations do not drain our planet of its resources, and they can supply a seemingly limitless source of energy. Discover more about nuclear energy, how it is created and harnessed, and the controversies and challenges that surround it. From School Library Journal: Gr 5-8-Exploring natural and human-made energy sources, this comprehensive series examines the history, use, technology, and environmental issues associated with these resources, as well as alternatives and the outlook for the future. Enlightening without being preachy, the volumes emphasize the need for sustainable energy forms, incorporating balanced perspectives and up-to-date data to better inform readers on the advantages and disadvantages of each energy source. Sidebars such as "Rewind," "The Energy Future: You Choose," and "Fast Forward" offer in-depth analysis, specific historical examples, and ideas to stimulate critical thinking and discussion as well as current examples, facts, and statistics that enable students to come to their own conclusions. A simple hands-on activity at the end of the books helps readers understand the concepts in a more direct way. VERDICT A wealth of material makes this set a solid addition to science collections.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Human activities have a huge impact on the Earth. Environmental engineers apply traditional engineering practices to help improve and prevent damage from humans and the waste we create to ecosystems and our environment. Readers will learn about how environmental engineering began, and the many processes environmental engineers apply to find sustainable solutions to problems. Real-life examples help students understand key concepts related to this important profession. From Booklist: Books in the Engineering in Action series provide broad introductions to their respective fields in a colorfully illustrated, large-format package. A typical, rather crowded double-page spread presents a specified topic and illustrates it with two or three small photos. (Example: one ongoing theme running through many of the books is an engineer’s approach to problem solving and collaborating on projects.)

While job possibilities in the field are discussed, educational requirements for various careers are not. Each book includes a design challenge that leads readers through the steps of a project such as creating a sound track, fire extinguisher, desalination device, or periscope. Environmental surveys this growing field and discusses matters such as alternative energy sources and waste management. Besides discussing light and vision, Optical looks at significant optical advances of the past (the Fresnel lens, the laser) as well as technologies in development now. Solid information for engineering-minded students. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Everything moves! Kids run around the playground, cars drive on the road, and balls fly through the air. What causes all this motion? Physics! Forces and motion rule the way everything moves through space. In Explore Forces and Motion! With 25 Great Projects, readers ages 7 through 10 discover that the push and pull of every object on the planet and in space depends on how a force acts upon it. Things float because of a force called buoyancy, we stick to the ground because of a force called gravity, and we make footprints in sand because of a force called pressure. Physics becomes accessible and interactive through activities such as a experimenting with a water cup drop, building a bridge, and spotting magnetic field lines. Simple machines such as levers, pulleys, and wedges are used as vehicles for discovery and comprehension of the foundational concepts of physical science. Using a theme familiar to everyone-motion-this book captures the imagination and encourages young readers to push, pull, twist, turn, and spin their way to learning about forcesand motion.
