Summary "Bridges, furniture, musical instruments, games, vehicles--all of these things were invented and improved upon by people who love to put stuff together, take stuff apart, and figure out how things work! Humans have been inventing throughout history. We like to discover new ways of doing things and new things to work and play with! Through tinkering, trial-and-error, and the engineering design process, everyone can discover new products and processes that make life easier! The rise of makerspaces in schools, libraries, and homes around the world means that more people than ever are learning through doing. In Explore makerspace!, kids in elementary school explore what it means to be an engineer. In this book, imagination, art, and logic combine to produce lasting lessons in science, math, and physics. Engineering kids learn how to look at problems and find ways to solve them through critical and creative thinking!" -- Page [4] cover.
