He has led over eight hundred projects in water supply and wastewater treatment in nineteen countries, and holds twenty-three method and apparatus patents relating to the conversion of organic wastes to biofuels and biochemicals and the control of emissions from combustion. James has published his new book “The Galumpy Board”: an entertaining and inspiring story for young readers.
The author shares, “Children are given material from a waste pile of boards. They learn the merits of being polite and asking for permission. The children decide a bridge is needed across a ditch between their houses. They work together and solve problems using trial and error. By sharing ideas and respecting one another’s opinion, they make progress. They learn to be creative and how to work with the limited tools and materials at hand. They actually are learning the engineering principles of beam strength, beam deflections, dynamic loadings, and lateral stability. In addition, they also learn and practice some carpentry arts. They learn about safety and realize they could be hurt if they are not careful. They feel the pride of completing what they started out to accomplish.”
Published by Page Publishing, James Titmas’s engrossing book is a delightful addition to any home- or school-based children’s library.
