Carol Vorderman_How to Be an Engineer
Do you like to explore how the things around you work? Do you want to create a new material? If so, you should be an engineer! Engineers use math and science to help people by creating solutions to problems.
If you want to be an engineer, it is important for you to learn how to solve problems and conduct experiments. Engineers and scientists both use experiments to test ideas.
While scientists study how nature works, engineers create new things, like video games, better ways to grow food, and nanotechnology— technology so tiny you can see it using only special tools.
The first step in the engineering design process is to ask, What is the problem that needs solving? Then, engineers use their imaginations to come up with a plan based on things that they know or have found out by investigation. They then take their plan and create a design to solve the problem.
The last step in the process is to do experiments to test the design, to improve it or make it better. This book was written by our team of engineers to help you discover new ideas and learn more about the world around you. Come on, future engineers—let’s get started!
How the book works In How to be an Engineer, you will learn how to think and act like an engineer. The book is full of fun activities that can be done at home, as well as simple explanations and a look at some of the most famous
Awesome activities These pages feature engineering projects for you to try yourself. The results you get may not be the same as those in the book—but that’s OK! If the results don’t match up, try to figure out what you did differently, and then try it again.
Safety first All of the projects in this book should be done carefully. If you see this symbol at the top of a page, it means that you will need an adult to help you with the activity.
Cool engineering The topics on these pages cover everything from materials and robots to transportation and energy. They will help you understand the activities in the book.
Great engineers The stories behind groundbreaking engineers are brought to life in these pages. Learn about their greatest discoveries, and find out what made them such brilliant engineers in the first place.
Getting ready You can dive right into many of the projects in this book using items you have at home. There are also a few tools that may help with your engineering experiments. Thinking ahead is the first step to becoming an engineer.
Thinking like an engineer Equipment can be useful, but being an engineer isn’t always about having the right tools—it’s about the way you think. This list of tips will help you think like an engineer.
Engineers always ask questions. Be curious, and find out as much information as you can before you start a project. Engineers think about how things will look.
Use your imagination to visualize exactly what you want to create. Engineers are precise.
Always double-check that you are using the right tools and the correct measurements. Engineers are confident. You will succeed if you believe in yourself and your ideas.
Engineers regularly work in teams. You may prefer to work alone, but teamwork often produces some of the best results. Engineers are problem solvers.
Never give up. There is always a solution to the problem. Engineers never stop. If you think an experiment or invention can be improved, go back to it, and see if you can make it better.
