Reviews for other titles in the series: BioEngineering: Discover How Nature Inspires Human Designs School Library Connection: "Breaking down the complex topic of bioengineering into a kid-friendly format is a tough challenge, and Dr. Christine Burillo-Kirch does a fine job of doing just that. Bioengineering, the field which combines biology and engineering to build devices that help humans, is carefully defined and explained for upper elementary and middle school students. The text and comic style illustrations support science and STEM curriculum and projects while keeping it relatable and simple for budding scientists. The 25 projects, complete with supply lists and step-by-step directions, give students and teachers guidelines for meaningful projects and activities to extend learning and spark critical thinking. Recommended." Reviews for other titles in the series: Microbes: Discover an Unseen World with 25 Projects Booklist: "Making microbes an engaging topic for young readers is no easy task, but by marshaling comic-book-style illustrations and plenty of relatable examples, this book will be an appealing choice for the science classroom and the library shelf. Essential questions are introduced at the start of each chapter and are repeated at that chapter's close to reinforce the main concepts and encourage metacognition. Twenty-five experiments expound on concepts such as understanding herd immunity, viewing bacteria cultures, diagnosing infectious disease, and studying decomposition. Access to more information is made easy through the scannable QR codes and keyword search prompts that are embedded in the marginalia. By discussing the ways the microbes grow and thrive, this offers plenty of practical advice for staying healthy and preventing infection. As a series of fun experiments in a dynamic layout that also remains faithful to the basic tenets of scientific inquiry, this is sure to engage young biologists."
