by Cobb, Vicki


From the publisher

A 2018 Best STEM Book K-12 (National Science Teachers Association and the Children's Book Council) All hurricanes are made of air, water and energy; How Could We Harness a Hurricane? explores how humankind may be able to channel those elements for helpful purposes. Scientists and engineers have yet to design a way to weaken or steer a hurricane. Thas doesn't mean they haven't been thinking about how it could work, though! How Could We Harness a Hurricane? and legendary science author Vicki Cobb are here to tell that story. Vicki clearly explains air pressure, energy, and wind to show you how hurricanes are formed. And like Vicki's other award-winning titles, this book leads youngsters to learn by asking questions. How Can We Harness A Hurricane? offers questions and provides new points of view that may just change peoples' thinking. It shows kids the work scientists and engineers are doing to avoid future disasters. More importantly, Vicki Cobb shares hands-on experiments that make science fun, be it at home or in the classroom.
