How lucky am I? I won this great prize: Eddie Woo’s Wonderful World of STEM filled with so many fun projects to stimulate, engage and extend curious and creative minds. I’m so grateful to Kid’s Book Review and Pan Macmillan Australia, not to mention Eddie Woo for this amazing prize.
All I had to do was say in 25 words or less a favourite science fact that blows my mind. This is my winning entry:
“The Law of the Conservation of Matter totally blows my mind. What is, always was, and always will be recycled over and over. Wow!”
You can read more about the book and the competition here.
As you would expect, the blurb does a beautiful job of describing the book:
“STEM is everywhere.
It’s the Science that helps us understand the natural world.
It’s the Technology that uses knowledge and principles to invent tools.
It’s the Engineering that solves problems and builds our modern environment.
It’s the Maths that explores the patterns in the universe.
Draw, imagine, create, explore, discover, invent and find out about our wonderful world with this bumper book of STEM and STEAM activities from Australia’s favourite maths teacher, Eddie Woo.”
It’s a perfect gift for the holiday season, or any season, for a budding young scientist. And isn’t that what we want for all our children?
Kid’s Book Review is a wonderful site for finding books for your children to read. As Jackie French says, ‘The best books, reviewed with insight and charm, but without compromise.’ I wouldn’t argue with that. (They also have some wonderful competitions to win prizes like this one I just won in. 😉) Pop over and see what delights you can discover.
