From sound effects in video games and movies to surround-sound theatres, this fact-filled book explores the many ways audio engineers apply the science of sound. Readers will explore how sound travels and the characteristics of sound waves. Readers will also learn how to combine their understanding of sound science and the engineering design process to tackle a design challenge of their own. From Booklist: Books in the Engineering in Action series provide broad introductions to their respective fields in a colorfully illustrated, large-format package. A typical, rather crowded double-page spread presents a specified topic and illustrates it with two or three small photos. (Example: one ongoing theme running through many of the books is an engineer’s approach to problem solving and collaborating on projects.) The main text is augmented with related information in boxes designed to look like yellow sticky notes. While job possibilities in the field are discussed, educational requirements for various careers are not. Each book includes a design challenge that leads readers through the steps of a project such as creating a sound track, fire extinguisher, desalination device, or periscope. Audio tackles the science of sound and hearing, the differences between analog and digital signals, and the varied work of audio engineers. Solid information for engineering-minded students. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Genetic engineers study genes and DNA to develop ways to recreate and modify them to advance technologies in fields such as medicine and agriculture. Using living organisms and systems to create new products and technologies is called biotechnology. Readers will learn how genetic engineers are working toward curing diseases in humans and making crops less susceptible to disease. Real-life examples and a design challenge help students understand key concepts related to the engineering process, and encourage discussion about the impact of biotechnology on our lives, including its benefits and risks.
