Have you ever wondered what made human beings think they could take to the skies? Starting with Icarus and his wax and feather wings and Leonardo Da Vinci's Flying Machine and primitive helicopter know as the Aerial Screw, It'll Never Work: Aeroplanes and Helicopters explores the history of flying machines, the successes and failures that have led to the comforts of modern passenger flight that we know today.
Each title in this exciting, high-interest series looks at a different area of technology and engineering and reveals the pioneering ideas and scientific thinking that enabled its development, as well as exposing those that proved to be a dead end. Each spread examines a particular example in depth, bringing in other similar ideas where relevant, and revealing that experimentation and failure often pave the way to technology success. Beautifully designed and illustrated with infographic-style artwork, this series is an excellent technology resource for readers aged 9 and up.

What makes racing bikes extra-fast? How do boats float? What makes an aircraft take off? Covering lots of different vehicles, including land vehicles such as bikes, cars and scooters, water vehicles such as large boats and speedboats, and airborne vehicles such as helicopters and aeroplanes, Race that Bike! takes a fun look at forces in vehicles. While learning about forces you will find that you also find out the answers to many questions that you have asked yourself about how vehicles work, and more. This Feel the Force series shows how forces and motion work in the world around us, in a set of high-interest situations. Each book includes three simple activities or investigations for readers to try. Overlays over large photos, plus diagrams, show how forces are acting in a given situation. Topics covered in the series include basic pushes, pulls and friction, air resistance, gravity, mass, weight and springs. Curriculum-related information on forces is delivered in a fun, high-interest way Overlays over large photos, plus diagrams, show how forces are acting in a given situation A quiz at the back consolidates learning
IIf you travelled this morning, thank an engineer. Engineers solve problems to make life easier. One major problem at the start of the 20th century was inner city travel. Rails were expensive and obviously limited where a tram could go, but how could they do away with rails? Another problem was how to move a tram without horses. Read how the cities of Bradford and Leeds became so unhappy with the trams-without-rails they had bought that they actually set about building their own. The book contains images of working models, and asks; * Why was driving them was so difficult? * What was the 'Diddler' It also contains details of how you can make your own electric motor with some cheap, everyday household items. With details of the very first British tram-without-rails and an audio version included, welcome to the fascinating history of this part of engineering.
Presents the boyhood of the brothers who flew the first airplane in 1903.
