The World of STEM

Young readers are fascinated by modern marvels like
lightning-fast transportation, towering skyscrapers, and exciting digital
platforms. These innovations represent the hard work of scientists and engineers
who never stop asking questions and solving problems. Aligned with the NextGen
Science Standards, this incredible series demonstrates the processes behind the
groundbreaking advances that shape contemporary life and gets students to think
critically about their purposes. Readers learn how plans and designs are created
to solve specific problems. Next, those designs are tested and analyzed as
inventors balance new ideas with limitations like available materials and cost.
This set describes the central steps of engineering design while encouraging
students to consider cutting-edge technology on the horizon.
