An irrigation system is an arrangement of canals and conduits that bring water to crops that need it. Even the earliest civilizations found ways to irrigate their crops with water from nearby rivers. In time, simple canals gave way to more advanced technology, leading to todays massive irrigation systems. In this book, readers will explore essential STEM topics while learning the fascinating history behind irrigation systems, including their different parts, how they are used, and the amazing engineers and scientists who make them possible. The text was designed to reflect social studies and science curricula. Photographs, diagrams, and fact boxes are sure to capture the attention of even reluctant readers.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–7—A well-done look at a less explored topic. Each volume begins with the history of the given waterworks, starting in ancient times in places as widespread as China, the Fertile Crescent, the Mediterranean, and the Americas. Developments up until the modern period are described, although most of the content generally focuses on those in the United States, sometimes to the detriment of the series. (For instance, the Three Gorges Dam project in China is not included in Dams.) The different types of scientists and engineers who work on each project are mentioned, as well as how STEM influences the siting, construction, and maintenance of various waterworks. Environmental concerns are also addressed. VERDICT Canals and sewers aren't on most readers' top 10 interest lists, but this series may just change that. A great example of STEM in the real world for school and public libraries.
