ICIS assisted in research for the book, Engineering the City: How Infrastructure Works by organizing and leading focus groups of schoolteachers. These focus groups provided the authors, Matthys Levy and Richard Panchyk, with information about school children's knowledge and possible interest in infrastructure.
Engineering the City is an introduction to the working of cities and their infrastructure, and includes descriptions on how things such as sewers, power lines, and trains contribute to the overall function of a city. Using diagrams and simple language, the book explains the complex infrastructure many city dwellers take for granted and offers projects and simple experiments to give students of all ages a better understanding of how their city works.
