Inhaltsangabe: What types of robots will the future bring? How do biomedical devices help patients? Have you ever wondered how your phone works? In Engineering: Cool Women Who Design, readers ages 9 to 12 meet three women who are working hard in the engineering field. Elsa Garmire has designed many devices that use lasers and light. Amy Kerdok designs medical and surgical devices. Anna Stork co-founded LuminAID Lab, a company that produces solar lighting products for the developing world and beyond. Engineering combines high-interest content with links to online primary sources and essential questions that further expand kids' knowledge and understanding of a topic they come in contact with every day. Nomad Press books in the Girls in Science series supply a bridge between girls' interests and their potential futures by investigating science careers and introducing women who have succeeded in science. Compelling stories of real-life engineers provide readers with role models that they can look toward as examples of how it can be done.

Rezension: Praise for other books in similar series:
"Rocketry: Investigate the Science and Technology of Rockets and Ballistics"
"Booklist"
"With clear explanations of the Newtonian and other physical principles involved, Mooney provides a history of rocketry, from steam-driven contraptions in ancient Greece to today s (OK, tomorrow s) SpaceShipTwo and NASA s next-generation SLS . . . both the hands-on portions and the relatively extensive background information will give would-be rocketeers a strong liftoff."
"Cities: Discover How They Work with 25 Projects"
Winner of a 2014 Silver Moonbeam Award
"School Library Journal"
According to the 2010 Census, 80 percent of Americans live in urban areas. But do they know what it takes to make a city run? From this well-organized and engaging text, readers will learn how cities developed and grew. . . this is a worthy title for any library collection.
"Booklist"
Propounding the emerging interdisciplinary paradigm of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and design, and mathematics), this hands-on informational book discusses how cities complex structures and systems function together in an interdependent way. Through appealing illustrations, reader-friendly text, and fun hands-on experiments suitable for home and classroom, Reilly helps foster an appreciation for the way that cities function almost as organisms with vibrant systems and interdependent structures.
"Skyscrapers: Investigate Feats of Engineering with 25 Projects"
National Science Teachers Association Recommends
. . . "Skyscrapers" would make an excellent resource for the history or science teacher desiring to try a project based learning (PBL) unit. "Skyscrapers" is a terrific book, especially for elementary teachers looking for ideas to inject more engineering into their classroom.
"School Library Journal"
. . . accessible to reluctant readers . . . A useful title to supplement lessons on architecture, mathematics, or physics for classroom teachers or homeschoolers, and it s an appealing initiation to the subject.
"Bridges and Tunnels: Investigate Feats of Engineering with 25 Projects"
Winner of a 2012 Gold Moonbeam Award
National Science Teachers Association Recommends
"This book is a treasure trove of information, experiments, and building challenges, and is an excellent, exciting, and easy way to incorporate STEM education into your classroom, science fair, or after school engineering club."

Ithaca Child, Nov 2016 Engineering is as old as human societies. In ancient times, engineers designed the aqueducts, the pyramids, and trebuchets. As people developed new materials. iron, steel, plastics engineers used them to build the things people needed: bridges, heart valves, cell phones. Engineering schools sprouted during the industrial age, but women weren t admitted as students. This books highlights three women who are engineers. One designs medical devices, one designs solar lighting products and one designs devices that use lasers. In addition to their stories, there are plenty of short bios about other women in engineering, such as Nora Stanton who, in 1905 was the first woman to graduate from Cornell University with an engineering degree. You ll also find information about cool careers, and a few hands-on engineering challenges.

Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children's Media Recommended -- Superior in style, liveliness, integrity and format. "Designing medical equipment, solar lighting, and optical devices using lasers are the primary areas of work for three successful women engineers, Amy Kardok, Anna Stork, and Elise Garmire, PhD. After a brief history of engineering, biographies of these three describe their childhood, obstacles they faced in their pursuit of their careers, and major contributions addressing human needs through engineering. What distinguishes this series from other biographies is the inclusion of mini-biographies of other women engineers, QR codes to access online content, such as a 3-D doodle pen, catapult design, TED talks, and surgical robots. Beginning with a "How to use this book" page, readers are directed to high quality Essential Questions in "Ask & Answer" boxes, "She Says" quote boxes, "Cool Career" suggestions, and Primary Source symbols linked to the QR codes. Back material includes a listing of all the Ask & Answer questions, timeline, glossary, additional books, websites, and places to visit, a listing of all the URL's for the QR codes, and an index. An appealing graphic design and well-written text is only missing a few photographs of the women featured. Still a recommended purchase."

++: Highly Recommended

Engineering: Cool Women Who Design presents engineering as a varied and inspiring career path for women towards children. The book features wonderful examples of different women in engineering who are solving problems by creating lighting solutions for disasters, improving surgical devices, and utilizing lasers for broader applications. The book starts with an introduction to the history of engineering. Then it has three chapters that feature a particular woman's early life, work, and challenges in engineering. There was LGBTQ representation and senior representation among the women featured in each chapter. Every chapter also had excerpts that summarize additional women's impacts on their respective engineering disciplines. Within the excerpts, there was representation of women with disabilities and women of color. All of the scientific and engineering work described in the book was accurate and succinct, including household items for easy connection to the daily life of the reader. The book also features many links and resources for young women to further explore the possibilities engineering offers. Finally, this book is very well-written, organized, and researched. It has a glossary to allow readers to find primary sources. It engages readers by using colorful images and cartoons effectively. This is a wonderful book to introduce girls to engineering!
