The STEM of Airplanes
When the Wright brothers made their first flight, they stayed aloft for less than thirty seconds. Thanks to evolving technology, people can now travel in modern aircraft to far-flung continents in the span of a day. Airplanes have opened up the world for both leisure and business, and flight has forever changed warfare and continues to redefine it. This exciting book explores how the imaginative minds of early inventors first lifted people skyward and how continued technological innovation has allowed us to travel farther, faster. It includes accessible content about science, engineering, and math, and attention-grabbing topics including jet fighters and space flight.
