How Could We Harness a Hurricane?: Discover the Science Behind This Incredible Weather Wonder!

by Vicki Cobb
SKU: 9781633227187

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. A hurricane is the largest storm on the planet with the power to destroy life and property. It is a fascinating system and the focus of intense scientific study. Scientists and engineers have yet to design a way to weaken or steer a hurricane, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been thinking about how it could work, though! Legendary science author Vicki Cobb is here to tell you that story with this accessible and interesting read. In How Could We Harness a Hurricane? Vicki clearly explains air pressure, energy, and wind to show how hurricanes are formed. And like Vicki’s other award-winning titles, this book leads her readers to learn by asking questions. This book is sure to fascinate and stimulate young scientists like you! How Could We Harness A Hurricane? which made the “Best STEM Book 2018” list (K-12) by the National Science Teachers Association and the Children’s Book Council, offers questions and provides new points of view that may just change your thinking. It shows the work scientists and engineers are doing to avoid future disasters like hurricanes Katrina, Sandy, and Maria. In addition, Vicki Cobb shares hands-on experiments that make meteorology even more fun, be it at home or in the classroom. This informational book introduces science concepts with lots of photos and diagrams, a helpful glossary, and a bibliography for further reading,
