Engineered!: Engineering Design at Work

We rated this book:

$17.99

In this book, the author talks about engineers and things they did. Aerospace engineers had to figure out how to land a rover on Mars. Biomedical engineers created fake skin by using a 3D printer. A chemical engineer made a battery that lasted longer. Mechanical engineers made bicycles that got rid of drag. Electrical engineers made a computer. Civil engineers designed a bridge to make traffic less blocked up. Environmental engineers replaced sewer pipes in a lake with a new system. There are symbols in the book to tell you what design step the scientists are on. There’s a glossary and an index.

I found the stories interesting. I liked learning about the project trying to save the caribou. I liked the man-made island. It’s the shape of a palm tree. They used GPS to make it. I liked the pictures. I liked the artist’s drawing of LOIS, the Lake Oswego Interceptor Sewer. The last story was my favorite. I found it most interesting. It was the one about the sewer.

I learned a lot. I didn’t know about the seven steps of the design process. People who want to become engineers would like this book. I like this book! It’s one of my favorite books!
