Jump into STEM This Summer with DK Canada Books!
Has the last school bell rung this year for your kids? Did you want your family to have fun while learning more about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, or STEM this summer? DK Canada has a bevy of books that can peek the interests of readers of all ages. I was asked to review three titles to share how we can jump into STEM topics.
Here are the books my family received to crack open and enjoy:
Have you ever wondered about the construction of buildings around the world? Engineers shares with readers about some of the world’s most amazing builders throughout time. This titles profiles such marvelous builders from Archimedes and Leonardo Da Vinci to Ferdinand Porsche. Innovations such as quake –resistant design and the evolution of flight are also featured in this book for readers to enjoy.
It was fascinating to learn about the progression of innovation in Engineering. The photos and illustrations helped the information in the text come alive for me. I really liked learning about the role of engineering played in making our world what it is today and the people who made it happen.
Rocket Science for the Rest of US
Curious about what a black hole is? Why is antimatter so important? The answer these questions and more can be found in Rocket Science for the Rest of Us. This book helps readers understand some of the more complicated aspects of science and physics of how our universe works.
I had never known that some stars can be classed as “smelly.” This book shared how brown dwarf stars get this distinction. It shows, step-by-step, how this kind of star goes from having the potential of shining bright to becoming dull, containing elements in its atmosphere that could make it odorous (hydrogen sulfide and ammonia).
Utterly Amazing Science STEM
Don’t think I have left the kids out of the fun STEM books DK Canada has to offer readers! Utterly Amazing Science makes learning about the world around them entertaining. Info flaps, pop-ups and pull-outs makes learning fun and interesting for kids. Engaging photos and illustrations also help to get information across to young learners.
My kids loved flipping through the pages of this book. They had to try opening every flap, pulling every pull out and investigating every pop-up! My daughter’s favourite section had to be the “Feel the Force” section.
She giggled as she opened the flaps that told her the different effects force can have on an object. She was interested in finding out about balanced forces on objects like bridges and boats. The part she enjoyed the most was learning how rockets are able to fight Earth’s gravity to go into space. It was clever to have a pull up here of a rocket to show how a rocket needs thrust to fly.
My family really enjoyed learning different aspects of STEM from DK Canada. It was great to be able to find out about the history of the innovation of technology, the secrets of space and magic of the world around us without having to leave our home. We really love being able to jump into fun learning STEM titles whenever we want!
