Review:

Great care and research went in to making this book useful to teachers. All the activities are engaging and relevant, and can be completed with middle school students. The multimedia links are especially useful. I recommend this text as a resource for middle school teachers. --Janine Manninen, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School

Designed for use in grades 4 7 and aligned with "various standards for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)," this compendium offers 26 kid-friendly lessons that teach science concepts through student-designed and tested objects . . . From designing a transportable bridge to creating a catapult that hurls pennies to making an egg-cooking solar oven, kids are bound to learn important concepts as they build. --Alicia Eames, School Library Journal

The activities in the book address standards and are a perfect fit for helping students to connect science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in a way that is fun and inviting. As a classroom resource, this book can help teachers can bring out the "inner engineers" in their students! --Janet Acerra, NSTA Recommends
