Detailed Book Description
What kind of sneakers are you wearing right now? What material is your shirt made out of? And how did all of these clothes and accessories get made and arrive at a store for you to try on and buy?
In The Science of Fashion, learn how science, technology, and engineering make the entire fashion industry possible! Most people tend to think of fashion designers and scientists as occupying two completely different worlds, but the truth is, the fashion business is completely dependent on and intertwined with science and engineering. The computer technology used in fashion design, the science behind dyes and special treatments such as waterproofing, and the engineering innovations in manufacturing of fast fashion are just a few of the ways the fashion world and the science and engineering world meet.
Hands-on engineering projects, links to online resources, career connections, and essential questions get kids engaged with the science of what they wear!
