STEM Girls Books - Chelsea Discovers Chemistry Review from a woman in STEM: Getting to go along as "Chelsea Discovers Chemistry" from her youth in cooking to her teen years developing makeup was quite enjoyable as a Chemical & Biomolecular Engineer myself! What I loved most about this story is that it showcases very common, but often overlooked worlds of chemistry that exist in every home. Many children associate chemistry and science with labs but as Chelsea discovers in the story, science can be done with the simple ingredients found in a kitchen or on a vanity. -Tamara Robertson, Actress and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineer
ASTRONOMY - TELESCOPES Many women in STEM, like aerospace engineer Julia Macon and physics enthusiast Jacqueline Musiov share that some of their favorite childhood memories involved looking up into the dark, starlit skies and imagining the possibilities of the unknown. To fuel a child's excitement about the wonders that exist beyond what we can see and touch, telescopes like these are amazing. This sense of awe and wonder is also captured in one of our first books, Sophie and the Airplane.
CREATIVE PLAY When we think about girls in science, we sometimes overlook a key ingredient: creative play. Many of our women in STEM remind us that arts and craft, dress up, and other feminine activities nurture the imagination - a critical part of science endeavors. Chemical engineer Marissa Buck shares that while puzzles and building toys enhance critical thinking skills, the arts help develop creativity that is needed to discover innovative solutions to problems.
