As I mentioned last week, I have another great book to share with you today, which would be perfect to occupy the kids in the summer holidays. My STEM Day Technology is one of a series of new fact and activity books published in June through Carlton Books.
My STEM Day Technology is one of a series of four titles aimed at children aged seven years and over. The sixty-four-page paperback book engages children with technology through a series of fun facts and activities.
The book explains how everyday objects work and how they’ve changed over the years. Then children can complete activities and puzzles to put what they’ve learned into practice. From learning about clocks and then making a pendulum to understanding how a toaster works and then making their own circuit.
We’ve done a lot of baking over the years and watching what yeast does to make bread and hot cross buns rise is still a highlight for my son.
Children learn about airwaves and how to make a sound booster as well as learning about satellites and biros. My son’s been fascinated with bar codes recently so My STEM Day Technology has been useful to talk him through the technology before the codes he sees on the products we buy.
He can then make his own bar codes and decode them. That will keep him busy when I’m working in the weeks to come!
I’m all for him helping with household chores and he can learn about how vacuum cleaners work and then have fun with the technology behind it.
Other titles in the series include My STEM Day Engineering (check out last week’s post), My STEM Day Mathematics and My STEM Day Science. You can find out more about these books on the Carlton Books website.
