Inspire children to imagine their future and make it happen!
Patty O'Brien Novak
Imagine a world without cars and computers, or toys and televisions, or movies and microwaves. Then imagine a world without engineers. "Engineering the ABC's" answers questions about how everyday things work and how engineering relates to so many parts of a child's daily life. In a uniquely engaging and informative style, this book shows how engineers shape our world.
How does a television work? A television converts electrical signals into images and sounds on a screen. Engineers research different materials to learn which ones provide the best picture and sound quality.
The 1954 New Year's Day Tournament of Roses Parade was the first television program seen in color. Before then, television shows were in black and white.
