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.

From this book they would enjoy learning about ‘keeping it cool’, especially during this upcoming heatwave!
I think my daughter would love sensational science as her favourite she loves experimenting with chemicals they are fascinating
Zip wires! He has a real fixation with them, drives me mad tying them to every door handle in the house lol
Always the how and why of everything – will get me off the hook as my nephew can read for himself
Rise and Shine looks particularly good as a way of helping the children understand the power of the sun.
The kids would love learning how things work and doing the puzzles and quizzes.
My daughter would love to learn about how zip wires work
Keeping it cool definitely sounds interesting and looks great
Hopefully Structural Engineering…..as that’s what I do!
Marine engineering as we just love sailing on classic liners like the old QE2
My son loves to know how things work. If there is stuff about magnets there, even better…
mine likes to open things up to see how they work
I think they’ll be interested in learning about bike gears, and hopefully not break mine!
I think the children would be fascinated in the whole topic of engineering. Trains is one great interest of one of the children, so steam power would be an aspect which he may quickly explore. As he loves trains generally, so from steam to electric.
My son loves anything that has a screw and interested in how things work esp trains. He’d love the mechanical engineering side of things more so than say electric or computing engineering.
My grandson would like anything to do with robots!
just how things work
We have solar panels fitted to the roof, so they could learn how it transfers suns rays to electricity
My son would love learning about bike gears, so he can apply it to his own bike!
The page on traffic lights because they are fun to look at and see change 😀
I think they would enjoy learning about zip wires and how they work
My daughter would love to learn anything about cars as she is fascinated by how they work.
My daughter loves figuring out how things work, though luckily she hasn’t decided to take anything apart yet lol! She’d love to know about trains most, I think!
My boys love anything with a motor & would love learning about bikes or trains
my son loves to learn how everyday things work
My son would like to know how robots work.
my son loves learning how things are built and how they work
I think he will like the wacky water section.
zip wires! My son is mad for them.
learning how to make zipwires work… no doubt i would find them trying to build their own the moment my back was turned ahahah they both love adventure and are extreemly interested in figuring out how things work
They love anything to do with water
How the locks work on the local canal
They are amazed how they go up and down
My son would adore this book! He would enjoy every single part of it!!
My nephew would love to learn about how we get hot water into our homes!
Rise and Shine looks particularly good as a way of helping the children understand the power of the sun
My son would love to know how an engine works
my son love to find out how everything works and why
My children love experiments so the sensational science would be ideal
What aspect of engineering will you children enjoy learning about and why?
Science, as they love to find out how things work
Circuit building as I think my son would love it
My daughter loves all things to do with robots
My son would love mechanical engineering. He is fascinated by engines and how things work. He also loves taking things apart
How robots work
my daughter would lov anything to do with how engines work!
My children like playing with water so might like the bit about water pressure, also daddy is a plumber
Engineering, as they like to know how things are built and operate.
The water pressure section looks fascinating
I think my son would like to see how bike breaks work (and hopefully not take ours apart without us knowing!)
At the moment it would be keeping things cool… it’s too hot!
Zip wires! We are crazy for them.
My nephew is crazy about anything computerized so he loves robotics.
zip wires as they love how they work
my grandson loves seeing how things work
The kids are always asking me about bike gears and I never have an answer! This would be perfect!
My 5 year old is autistic and has a fascination with how things work, he’d definitely love the traffic lights section as he’s very into road signs and vehicles at the moment!
My nephew loves finding our how things work and is also interested in robots / robotics.
My niece would love to no how zip wires work x
Great for encouraging the Engineers of the future.
