How Does a CRANE DRIVER Use Science?

We all know that crane drivers work high above the ground building skyscrapers and other tall structures, but did you know that they use science in their job? In this title for early readers, the Little Scientists visit a building site and learn all about forces and pulleys. They will discover how cranes work, how crane drivers control their machines, check and repair them and use maths and science skills to load and unload ships and trucks and shift heavy objects on construction sites. This colourful, quirky and delightful first look at the work of a crane driver will help young readers develop a love of reading and of science.
