The Book Of Massively Epic Engineering Disasters Summary

The Book Of Massively Epic Engineering Disasters: 33 Thrilling Experiments Based on History's Greatest Blunders by Sean Connolly

Every wonder why Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa has been slowly toppling over for centuries? Stack books on a foundation of paper balls to learn about rickety building foundations and entre of mass. How about the 15 foot high tidal wave of molasses that to re through the streets of Boston in the Great Molasses Flood of 1919? Karate chop a full tube of toothpaste (outside!) to demonstrate the messy behaviour of non-Newtonian fluids. With The Book of Epically Disastrous Engineering, kids get active with a fun, illustrated tour through the physics and technology of crumbling buildings, sinking ships, wobbly bridges, mud stuck tanks, and much more. Covering a wide range of snafus, mishaps, and outright disasters throughout history - some infamous, like the Titanic sinking and Chilean miners trapped underground, and others lesser know, like the Fidnae Stadium collapse in ancient Rome - these 48 hands on experiments put readers newfound knowledge into action. Each demonstration uses familiar household ingredients and helps break down the barrier between learning and doing - or even better, between learning and having fun.
