Learn as you do in this hands-on engineering book for kids with Carol Vorderman. Being an engineer isn't just about wearing a hard hat and looking important while holding a clipboard! It's about looking at the world and trying to figure out how it works. As well as simple engineering projects for kids to try, DK's How to be an Engineer will teach them how to think like an engineer, including materials, building, machines, getting around, and energy. You can find out how engineers use STEAM subjects and their imaginations to fix problems, and take inspiration from engineering heroes such as Leonardo da Vinci, Mae Jemison, and Elon Musk. This book encourages you to investigate, with amazing projects using things from around your home: find out about materials by crushing loo rolls, learn about jet propulsion with balloons, and build a robot arm from rulers. Fun questions, engineering experiments, and real-life scenarios come together to make engineering relevant. In How to be a Engineer the emphasis is on inspiring kids, which means less time at a computer and more time in the real world! Do you like solving problems? Are you good at making things? Have you ever dreamed of being an inventor? If so you may be an engineer in the making.

Study pre-calculus and, if possible, calculus at a high school level, and be sure to take chemistry and physics classes. Physics and calculus combine to form the backbone of engineering courses, so understanding them is key to getting a degree. Thinking of becoming an Engineering Surveyor? Learn more about the role including real reviews and ratings from current Engineering Surveyors, common tasks and duties, how much Engineering Surveyors earn in your state, the skills current Employers are looking for and common education and career pathways. Chemical engineers are involved in employing chemical and biological scientific techniques to transform and process raw materials into usable, functional products and substances.

Mechanical engineers in particular carry out research, and are involved in designing, developing and testing mechanical devices and machinery, continue reading to find out how to become a mechanical engineer. It's hard to narrow down this job role to a particular industry.
