This beautifully illustrated educational book, part of the innovative SAE International- A World In Motion program, teaches engineering principles to primary-age children through an imaginative and exciting story. In The Rocket Age Takes Off, readers explore the whimsical world of Robert Goddard and learn about the father of modern rocketry. This book follows Dr. Goddard' s exciting journey to build the world' s first liquid-fueled rocket and describes how his inventions advanced space exploration. While learning about Dr. Goddard' s early trials and tribulations, readers will begin to uncover the work necessary to optimize a design to make an object go farther and higher. Proceeds of book sales benefit the SAE Foundation and its pre-college educational programs.
