"Discover how space is part of our daily lives with Everyday STEM Science--Space, filled with facts, stories, and experiments to try at home!
Everyone knows there are planets and stars and space rocks, but how do these, and everything else in space, affect us on Earth? From the beginning of the universe and the origins of the planets, to the latest research and space missions, journey through space and uncover what is really out there . . .
Discover how we're made of stars, find out how old you would be if you lived on Mars, and how time travel can happen in space. Plus, meet the explorers, astronomers, and scientists whose discoveries have given us this fascinating space knowledge, including Mae Jemison, Stephen Hawking, and Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin. Readers can also carry out cool astronomical experiments at home.
With easy-to-understand text written by science communicator and podcaster Izzie Clarke, and lots of colorful artworks, photos and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter space and why it's even important at all.
The Everyday STEM series makes science relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their future success, these books show readers how we use science, technology, engineering, and math in our everyday lives. While the topics sound high-level and complex, this series makes these concepts age-appropriate and accessible. So, while we can't promise to teach 9 to 11-year-olds quantum physics, we can explain in the simplest terms the practical applications of STEM."
