The Incredible Work of Engineers with Max Axiom, Super Scientist

by Agnieszka Biskup

Part of a Series: Graphic Science and Engineering in Action.

The Federal Space Exploration Agency wants to build a colony on the moon, and they want Super Scientist Max Axiom to find the engineers to do it! On the off chance that premise doesn’t grab readers’ attention, the book also boasts a comic-book format and a superhero narrator who vvrooms from one engineering site to another on a shiny red motorcycle. In fast-paced, informative conversations, a wide array of engineers (mechanical, astronautical, biomedical, etc.) explain the work they do and how that work could help make the lunar colony a reality. Occasional text boxes add further detail. This high-energy introduction to engineering is sure to leave readers wanting more, and the back matter offers information about engineering, further reading suggestions, a link to publisher-approved Web sites, and an index.
