Description

Engineers Decide Awaken the young engineer within your student or child! Ideal for ages five through ten, Engineers Decide explains that engineering isn’t about “things” but about individuals, inspired to bring forth the discoveries that will change our world. By instilling the joy of designing the future – whether as part of a team or working solo – Engineers Decide ignites children’s curiosity to the wonders of applying their imagination to meet fresh challenges. Engineers deciding upon solutions for product development, as well as all sorts of inventions familiar to children, are described simply and depicted with colorful artwork. And photos show children actively participating in the adventure of discovering next-generation technology. Filled with interactive elements including photos, videos, and a drawing scratchpad, Engineers Decide stirs tomorrow’s engineers to realize their potential by exploring this exciting field.

  • Great for Kids

    By Kenneth Cooke
    This book is great for kids. It gives fun, educational examples of all of the things engieneers can do, yet still makes it easy to understand. It teaches kids that there are so many more things they can be when they grow up other than a doctor or lawyer. The illustrations are vibrant and detailed. But the videos really make the book. It’s so nice to have a more in depth component to go along with the story.
  • Videos are a great touch!

    Wonderful book to help children learn what engineers do. The videos make it a book for all ages. My 12 year old son and I LOVED the bridge implosion video - if you look close, you will see the 2nd bridge. We were amazed that engineers could implode one bridge and not damage the bridge next to it.

    This was the first children's iBook we've ever downloaded and we are so happy we did. Our whole family loved the book! It was informative and engaging. We looked forward to each page. The visuals seemed to add just the right amount of stimulation to help keep the kids connected to the content. It's worth a few re-reads too!

    This book is an important addition to every child's bookshelf. It's inspiring and engaging and I hope it succeeds in creating a new, and much needed, generation of engineers.
  • Puts the TE in STEM Education!

    By Dr. Susan M Holland
    Teacher Alert! This digital book is a "must have" for every elementary education classroom! Capturing the natural wonder and curiosity children have about how things work, the book fosters awareness and interest in the technology and engineering fields. With an enriching, engineering vocabulary, the book pairs video clips of real engineering projects, with features of children as engineers, in their own constructive play. From sippy cups, car seats, and crayons, to instruments, robots, and amusement park rides, children are encouraged to think, ask new questions about the human-made world, and see themselves as future engineers. A great book to put the TE in STEM Education!

    This book helps to address the dearth of information that currently exists for children pertaining to a future in engineering. It clearly and concisely fills an enormous knowledge gap and may even make a profound a profound difference in the future of America as it relates to technology and innovation. Well done!

    What makes this book unique is it's multimedia content. My kids love being able to touch and flip through the photos and play the videos on each page.
