Hi,

I'm looking for some good reads _about_ physics or engineering, not "teaching" books about physics concepts or study guides.

I want to engage kids in the process of viewing the world as a physicist or engineer. Primarily I'm looking to spark imagination.

HS kids cannot, rather will not, wade through long, detailed biographies. I'm looking for materials that have the gems lying closer to the surface.


References to good online lists gratefully accepted.
