Discover how electrical engineering is part of our daily lives with Everyday STEM Science — Electrical Engineering.

Following on from Everyday STEM Engineering – Civil Engineering and Chemical Engineering comes another branch of engineering – electrical. Explore this fascinating side of engineering, from the electrical engineering throughout our homes including washing machines and toothbrushes to the high-tech robotics and AI that are assisting humans in every corner of the world. Plus, meet the engineers and scientists whose discoveries are changing our lives for the better, including Yvette Stevens, Tim Berners-Lee and Wendy Carlos. There are also fun engineering experiments that readers can carry out at home.

With easy-to-understand text written by Jenny Jacoby, fun callouts and lots of colourful artworks, photos, and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter electrical engineering and why it’s even important at all.

The Everyday STEM series makes STEM relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their “future success,” these books, including Everyday STEM Science – Physics, show readers how we use science, technology, engineering and maths in our everyday lives. While the topics sound high-level and complex, this series makes these concepts age-appropriate and accessible. So, while we can’t promise to teach 9 to 11-year-olds quantum physics, we can explain in the simplest terms the practical applications of STEM.
