What is S.T.E.A.M.?

S.T.E.A.M. is an area of education that focuses on developing interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Until somewhat recently, the acronym was known as S.T.E.M. with Art, A, having been added since creativity is essential to success in more technical areas. Exposing children to opportunities in S.T.E.A.M. fosters a love of learning and sets the stage for a successful career in some of the most important roles for our society.

Traditionally, boys were considered “more geared” for science, technology, engineering, and math. We know today that gender does not determine one’s ability to be successful in these fields.  Exposure to the concepts at an early age, however, and an understanding of the opportunities within those fields, does. With a young daughter and two young sons, I am determined to how can we inspire them to be curious, courageous, and determined.  How can we spark a passion for science and problem-solving in our children? They are our future, after all.

Encouraging S.T.E.A.M. in today’s youth

One way to encourage these traits is for children to read about them. Books about heroic girls are still far fewer in number than those with male heroes but new ones are popping up all the time. It is vital that young girls & boys see and hear about females taking charge and solving problems alongside all the stories where the hero is male. S.T.E.A.M. education is essential for a bright and capable next generation.Veronica and the Volcano book

I was recently given the privilege of receiving a copy of a new S.T.E.A.M. focused book to review with my family and instantly fell in love with the adventures! Veronica and the Volcano, written by Geoffrey Cook, follows a take-charge heroine who lives in a high-tech, gadget-filled house on the slope of an active volcano. When she leaves on a quest to find rare white volcano pearls on the far side of the biggest volcano of all, Mount Mystery, she and her companions find themselves on series of incredible adventures.

The book is geared for an 8 to 13-year-old reading level but my 3 & 6-year-olds have loved this as a family read-aloud book. I can not recommend this more! Today I am excited to offer 15 free copies of the book!
