Author Spotlight – Andrew King
Literacy | Author Spotlight
Meet Andrew King author of the Engibear series of books which includes Engibear’s Dream, Engibear’s Bridge and Engilina’s Trains.
In the interview, Andrew talks about his motivation for writing the Engibear books and shares his passion for making engineering accessible to young children.
Andrew’s series is unique in that it focuses on engineering within STEM engagement in the early school years. Engineering is an inherently “cross-curriculum” activity with natural links to many of the Australian Curriculum subjects (e.g. Mathematics and Science). Illustrations by Benjamin Johnston enhance the engineering and design experience.
