Chelsea Discovers Chemistry
Intro to Science
In our first book on science, young readers meet problem-solver Chelsea. Whether experimenting with recipes in the kitchen or dabbling with makeup, Chelsea discovers that it's all about chemistry.
Readers will also enjoy meeting a real chemical engineer at the end of the story, and learning more about her exciting career.
"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. I hope that this book inspires more young girls to go into Chemistry, or my favorite Chemical Engineering - like Marissa, the real Chemical Engineer featured in the story!"
-Tamara Robertson, Actress and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineer
