Have you ever wondered why and how the car was invented? From steam cars and trains to experiments with rocket powered and flying cars, It'll Never Work: Cars, Trucks and Trains explores the history and development of vehicles that have led to the comforts of modern passenger transport that we kw today. Each title in this exciting, high-interest series looks at a different area of techlogy and engineering and reveals the pioneering ideas and scientific thinking that enabled its development, as well as exposing those that proved to be a dead end. Each spread examines a particular example in depth, bringing in other similar ideas where relevant, and revealing that experimentation and failure often pave the way to techlogy success. Beautifully designed and illustrated with infographic-style artwork, this series is an excellent techlogy resource for readers aged 9 and up.
