With the summer holidays getting ever closer I’m going to be sharing a few activity books with you over the coming weeks which may well stop the dreaded words ‘I’m bored’ from being uttered in your homes! My STEM Day Engineering is one of a series of new fact and activity books recently published through Carlton Books.
My STEM Day Engineering is one of a series of four titles aimed at children aged seven years and over. This sixty-four-page paperback book is jammed full of challenges and activities to engage children with engineering.
There are easy to follow instructions that help explain how engineering affects everyday tasks. From looking at how we get hot water for the shower.
To looking at water pressure.
Each page is full of colourful graphics and the topic is covered in a way that children will understand and be able to relate to easily.
We will definitely be making good use of My STEM Day Engineering in the weeks ahead, especially if this rain doesn’t disappear! As well as the experiments which can be found throughout the book, there is a range of puzzles and quizzes to keep children entertained.
Children can learn about how zip wires work and then put what they’ve learned into practice as they make their own miniature version. They can look at how bike gears work up close and become structural engineers.
Other titles in the series include My STEM Day Technology (more on that soon), My STEM Day Mathematics and My STEM Day Science. You can find out more about these books on the Carlton Books website.
