From virtual reality headsets to a musical instrument that can switch instantly from being a guitar to a keyboard. From ocean vacuum cleaners that suck oil, detergents, and trash from the sea, to environmentally friendly plastic made from banana skins. Every day, inventors are creating new products and technologies that help us learn, live, work, have fun, and take care of our planet. Readers will meet some inventors who solve problems using creativity, design, science, and engineering. Told in a lively narrative style, this book includes firsthand accounts of how a range of cutting-edge inventions were developed. Readers will also get the chance to try their hand at designing and bringing their own inventions to life.

School Library Journal Review for Astronaut, Creating Visual Effects for Movies as a CGI Artist, Inventors, and Master Blasters

Though slim, each title provides enough background on its topic to give students a decent grasp on prospective job opportunities. The majority of the text focuses on current events and developments within the field (e.g., astronaut Scott Kelly’s historic year in space in Astronaut) but does backtrack to offer a general overview. Concluding “Get to Work” sections encourage kids to study the relevant subject areas and perform an experiment or action that mirrors what an actual inventor, CGI artist, etc., would do. The bright photos and up-to-date text make these fine selections for career collections.
