The combination of physics and engineering has probably been applied to everything in your house! Physics is the science of mechanics, movement, and energy, while engineering applies scientific principles to make useful tools. This workbook engages your brain with physics fundamentals. Then let your creative side participate, learning how this knowledge is used by engineers. LEGO® building bricks are the perfect medium to demonstrate the axioms by assembling custom machines that actually work. Constructing and experimenting with these models helps to solidify the concepts developed in each chapter—and you get to play with LEGO® bricks while you’re learning. Physics and engineering have never been so much fun!
A detailed list of what LEGO® bricks you will need is included. If you’re missing any in your own collection, directions for finding them easily are provided. Since this is an Edible Knowledge® series workbook, it contains a fun and interesting food science experiment as well! Let the author’s love and enthusiasm for food science and LEGO® bricks excite your imagination. Beakers & Bricks knows you will enjoy this approach to learning about physics and engineering!
