Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is a great book to use if you're just starting up an engineering elective for middle schoolers. It contains wonderful background about engineering in general, and the jobs of chemical, mechanical, and civil engineering specifically. The labs are easy to set up with easy-to-get materials.
