- "Welcome to the Industrial Revolution! It is an era when machinery begins to be used in manufacturing, true scientific thinking is applies to the invention of new products, and the first experiments with electricity are made. Civilization moves from the Iron Age to the Age of Steel, the first electric lights in the form of carbon arc lamps light up the night, and vulcanization revolutionizes the rubber industry. In this book you'll lean about some of the great discoveries and inventions of the Industrial Revolution, and then you'll try them yourself with hands-on experiments and do-it-yourself projects. The projects are illustrated with full-color drawings, diagrams, and photographs that make it easy for you to follow along and make your own versions of the period's great inventions"--Back cover.
