Everyday STEM Science – Energy
Illustrated by Luna ValentineAges 9-12
Energy is all around us! Everything that moves, changes, or exists has energy. But where does it come from and how is it used? Discover more with Everyday STEM Science – Energy.
Explore the different types of energy and how they impact everything that happens in our lives. From the electromagnetic energy that keeps us connected to the energy inside Earth to the energy that cooks our food. Discover how we can all be more energy efficient, the renewable energies that will transform our planet, and the scientists who brought energy to life. Readers can also carry out exciting energy at home.
With easy-to-understand text written by Dr Shini Somara, fun callouts, and lots of colourful artworks, photos and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter energy 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 maths 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 purpose of, and practical applications for, STEM.
