STEM Girls Books Makes it Easier to Bring Inspiration into the Classroom for Schools Impacted by Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, Maria
Hurricane season has been especially fierce this year for the states of Texas, Florida, and now Puerto Rico. The ripple effect of the devastation is significant, and reaches into schools with unexpected closings, traumatized students and disrupted classrooms.
At a time when children are uncertain about their tomorrow, STEM Girls Books would like to help fuel their hope for the future. We would like to offer schools directly impacted by these disasters the opportunity to bring STEM Girls Books into their classroom through a deeply discounted special program.
STEM fields are the key to solving some of the toughest problems our world faces, including natural disasters. We believe that the children dealing with the aftermath of these disasters may ultimately be the ones who create innovations that make the impact of such disasters less severe in the future.
If you are an early elementary teacher or school administrator who would enjoy the enrichment that a new resource would bring to your classroom – one that fuels hope and stimulates conversation about the problems your students might solve one day through careers in science, technology, engineering and math – please let us know through the form below and we will share details of our at-cost pricing program. We'll do our best to ensure that any impacted school that would like a set of our books receives them.
In addition, you and your students may find the women in STEM interviews on our website highly inspirational. Within these interviews you and your students will discover over 50 women – each with unique viewpoints, experiences and careers – who share words of encouragement and offer insights into exciting career paths.
STEM Girls Books are picture books designed for preschool through early elementary school ages. But don’t let the name fool you...STEM Girls Books are inspiring for both boys and girls.
From a recent reviewer:
“These books aren't just for girls. Young boys would enjoy them just as much. Aside from the title, the books are just fun stories of curious kids doing what kids do. The part of the books that I loved the most, both as a parent and an educator, was the end. At the end of each book is a connection to the interest of the character (airplanes, cooking and make-up, and a curious tinkerer) to the real life STEM career that shares those same interests: aerospace engineer, chemist, and a mechanical engineer. Just the fact that I get to have a discussion with my children/students about how they relate to the characters and then discuss a career they might be interested in is HUGE! How often do you get to bring up STEM careers with kids in a normal day? With these books, all the time!”
