Series Review
Titles in this series cover everything from medicine to the energy crisis. Examples from around the world show how problem solvers are creating unique solutions to serious dilemmas. Whether it is a wireless pacemaker the size of a dime, early warning apps for natural disasters, or converting methane into fish food, these ideas are cutting-edge. Each book focuses on a particular area of innovation, with case studies that introduce a specific innovator such as the creator of Cardborigami, a cardboard popup shelter for the homeless. Sidebars feature “Ingenious Innovation” ideas like the Seismic supersuit, a wearable technology that assists with physical therapy. Images show problems around the world and the remedies being tried. The text discusses the situations in a respectful manner, focusing on the needs of those involved and what is being done to meet them. A final “Innovators of the Future” section closes out each book with ideas that are still under development. A strong addition to STEM collections and for those looking for STEM role models.
