|aScience author Vicki Cobb creates clear explanations of air pressure, energy and wind, how hurricanes are actually formed, and the significance of the "eye." And like Vicki's other award-winning titles, this book leads youngsters to learn by asking questions, and encouraging "think tank" ideas that lead to valuable insights about our planet, and the work behind solving one of its most devastating storms. How Can We Harness A Hurricane? offers questions and provides possible alternatives. It shows youngsters how scientists and engineers are working today, to help avoid future disasters. More importantly, Vicki Cobb shares hands-on experiments that make science fun--at home, in the classroom and everywhere in between.
