Description


The purpose of the work is to introduce young adult readers (12-18 years old) to the basic, foundational principles of chemical engineering in an engaging, informative and accessible way.


The picture book format is used to unpack and explain the basic principles of chemical engineering in a simplified, digestible way using everyday items and processes as examples (e.g. brewing a cup of coffee, baking and decorating a cake). Each item is presented as a 4-stage pictogram to emphasize the concepts related to the chemical process. In the context of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) literature for children, there are few if any texts that touch on chemical engineering as a discipline-despite the crucial role chemical engineering plays in sustaining several core aspects of our daily life (e.g. food and beverage production, development of pharmaceuticals).


Most items we use every day are the result of a chemical engineering process-from food and beverages, to deodorant and even toilet paper This book introduces you to the How and Why behind chemical engineering processes, using objects and items you can find in your own home


In addition to appealing to those younger audiences with an identified interest in STEM, the book would also serve as a useful educational resource for middle years and high school teachers looking for an accessible text that clearly explains chemical processes and their engineering applications.
