Synopsis

Throughout human history, humans have been making tools and machines, from the simple to highly complex, to help us make the most of the world around us and use them to our benefit. Discover more with Everyday STEM Technology: Machines.

Explore a world full of natural forces and innovation. From the first tools used in the Stone Age to the machines of the future. Watch machines in space, observe robots doctors and meet the innovators and scientists who invented the machines that have improved our lives. Readers can also carry out experiments 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 geology 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.
