Description - The Book Of Massively Epic Engineering Disasters by Sean Connolly

DANGER: This book contains detailed information about the most legendary engineering disasters of all time!

Ever wonder why Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa has been slowly toppling over for centuries? Stack books on a foundation of paper balls to learn about rickety building foundations and center of mass. How about the 15-foot-high tidal wave of molasses that tore through the streets of Boston in the Great Molasses Flood of 1919? Karate chop a full tube of toothpaste (outside!) to demonstrate the messy behavior of non-Newtonian fluids. With The Book of Massively Epic Engineering Disasters, kids get active with a fun, illustrated tour through the physics and technology of crumbling buildings, sinking ships, wobbly bridges, mud-stuck tanks, and much more. Covering a wide range of snafus, mishaps, and outright disasters throughout history.

Buy The Book Of Massively Epic Engineering Disasters by Sean Connolly from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
