Scientists and engineers have yet to design a way to weaken or steer a hurricane. But that doesn’t mean they haven’t been thinking about how to do it. How Could We Harness a Hurricane? explores how humankind may be able to channel storm elements for helpful purposes.

Author Vicki Cobb clearly explains air pressure, energy, and wind to show readers how hurricanes are formed and explores the important work that scientists and engineers are doing to avoid future disasters. Cobb also shares hands-on experiments that make science fun, whether at home or in the classroom.
