Throughout human history tools and machines, from the simple to the highly complex, help us to make the most of the world around us. Discover more with Everyday STEM Technology—Machines.
Explore a world full of natural forces and innovation, from the first tools used in the Stone Age to the machines of the future. Watch machines in space, observe robot doctors, and meet the innovators and scientists who invented the machines that have improved our lives. Readers can also carry out experiments at home.
With easy-to-understand text written by Jenny Jacoby, fun callouts, and lots of colorful artworks, photos, and diagrams, readers can explore where we encounter machines and why they are even important at all.
The Everyday STEM series makes STEM relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their “future success”, these books, including Everyday STEM Technology—Machines, show readers how we use science, technology, engineering, and math 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 practical applications of STEM.
