Video: Take It Apart

In areas of libraries and classrooms called makerspaces, students construct, assemble, and create things. In breakerspaces, they do just the opposite—taking things apart to discover how they work. This series introduces readers to the breakerspace concept, encouraging them to learn how everyday household objects function. Each title highlights a different object, how to safely take it apart, and how its parts work together. Labeled photos of the disassembled objects make each step of the process clear. This series is ideal for aspiring young engineers or any other readers who want to know how things work. Additional features include a table of contents, a phonetic glossary, an index, an introduction to the author, and sources for further research.
