Booklist - 10/15/2015 Engineering is a practical, hands-on field of science, and each volume in the Engineering in Action series profiles some of the varied ways engineers affect everyday life. Each installment describes a field of engineering, a key element of the science involved, history-makers in the field, a case study outlining the design method engineers use to solve a problem, and an activity to demonstrate the concepts in action. In Biomedical Engineering, a team develops a more advanced prosthetic hand, and though their design is innovative, it still needs work. While the use of abstract language in each installment is a drawback, the illustrations are occasionally incidental, and the activities are sometimes difficult to follow, the description of the design process, especially the crucial component of failure and redesign, is particularly useful for students interested in STEM careers. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
