Zelda the Curious
2018 National Indie Excellence Award Finalist
In our first book on engineering, readers will meet Zelda, the precocious, lovable character that introduces young girls to the field of mechanical engineering.
Readers will also enjoy meeting a real life mechanical engineer at the end of the story, and learning more about her exciting career.
"Reading about "Zelda the Curious" and her adventures in assembling and disassembling the world around her reminded me so much of my childhood! It was so fun to see that this is a normal part of being a STEM girl and to share in these quests with Zelda. The inclusion of information about what STEM careers could come from being a tinkerer like Zelda is such a great touch, as is including the snippet about a real life Mechanical Engineer."
-Tamara Robertson, Actress and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineer
