Learn about some of today's hottest career markets: robotics, conservation, energy, engineering (dams and canals), and technology. Filled with projects, experiments, and activity sheets to engage your middle school student and inspire interest in these fascinating fields of study. Each week your students will build things from solar robots to windmills to dams. They will love this hands-on course.
Science H includes eight books, a Science Supplies Kit, and an Instructor's Guide. One book will teach your students about the technology that shapes our world, such as the engine of a hydrogen-fueled car and the earthquake-proof structure of the world's tallest building. From game consoles to space planes, they'll learn the science behind every gadget, and find out when and how things were invented.
Other books cover:
- Energy: the history and science of the world's energy sources, from nonrenewable fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas, to renewable sources such as solar and wind
- Planet Earth: wind and solar power, pollution, endangered species, global warming, and recycling--along with potential solutions
- Robotics: found today everywhere from industrial manufacturing to vacuuming homes, your children will come up with creative solutions to tricky problems by making their own simple robots
- The Industrial Revolution: the dynamic individuals and revolutionary innovations that impacted the lives of rich and poor, city-dweller and farmer, and changed the course of the modern world
- Garbage: what happens when you throw things "away"
- Canals and Dams: from ancient aqueducts to the Hoover Dam, investigate amazing waterways and barriers
- Weather & Climate Change: see the world of weather in dramatic photos and lively illustrations
This program is especially ideal for the curious, the tinkerer, and the students who are interested in STEM fields.
