How can we prevent destruction and danger when a hurricane hits?

In How Could We Harness a Hurricane?, Vicki Cobb describes this natural phenomenon and the three things it's made of: air, water, and energy. Read about traveling to the eye of the storm, modifying weather, and other interesting work that meteorologists, scientists, and engineers do to solve the big problems posed by hurricanes. How can we prevent destruction and danger when a hurricane visits our cities? From fortifying buildings to weakening or moving the hurricane itself, How Could We Harness a Hurricane? explores what engineers are trying to do to diminish the wrath of a hurricane. How Could We Harness a Hurricane? also includes simple, hands-on experiments that reinforce these fascinating hurricane facts and concepts.
ABOUT VICKI COBB
Vicki Cobb is the well-known author of more than eighty-five highly entertaining nonfiction books for children. Ever since 1972, when HarperCollins first published Science Experiments You Can Eat, Cobb's lighthearted approach to hands-on science has become her trademark for getting kids involved in experiences that create real learning. It is no surprise that she is known as the "Julia Child of hands-on science." Currently, she is becoming increasingly popular as a speaker to children and adults as educators search out sources for materials and activities that promote learning. Today's popular buzz words in education--"hands-on-science," "experimental learning," "out-come based," "multi-disciplinary" and critical thinking" are embodied in Vicki Cobb's work.Vicki Cobb credits her outlook on education to her mother's forward-looking thinking. From kindergarten to sixth grade she attended The Little Red School House in Greenwich Village. Her early education was a joyful experience of hands-on activities, field trips, reading children's literature (not textbooks), creative projects, and a kind of portfolio evaluation that today's educators realize are the most powerful tools for producing individuals who have a lifetime love of learning. According to Cobb her books "allow me to recreate the joy of learning I experienced in elementary school for myself, forever."
Vicki Cobb graduated from Barnard College with a major in zoology and went on to get a Master's degree in Secondary Science Education. After early careers as a laboratory researcher and science teacher, she became a full-time writer of science books for children. Light Action! Amazing Experiments in Optics represents her life as both author and parent. Her coauthor is her son Josh, and optical engineer and the illustrator is her son Theo, an artist and art director.
Vicki is a charter member of the award-winning group blog Interesting Nonfiction for Kids (I.N.K.) and she is the founder and president of Ink Think Tank, LLC, a company of the best nonfiction authors around, in all disciplines K-12, dedicated to bringing the nonfiction literature into the classroom. She is also a regular blogger for Education Update and the Huffington Post where she regularly questions the state of education, literacy, and the strange absence of using nonfiction literature in the classroom
