Look and Learn: How An Airport Works

Each title in the Look and Learn series explores a man-made structure layer by layer, looking at how science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) have been employed to make them function. Each spread focuses in on one aspect of the structure, with stunning artwork, bite-sized text, panels, labels and diagrams providing multiple entry points into the subjects, making the books appealing and accessible for reluctant readers.

How An Airport Works looks at the scientific innovations that have helped airports to fly millions of passengers safely around the world, including how airports are designed to guide travellers to their destination, how air traffic control monitors planes in the air and how technology is being used to offset carbon emissions caused by air travel.
