Illustrated by Luna ValentineAges 9-12
Discover how energy is part of our daily lives with Everyday STEM Science – Energy.
Energy is all around us! But where does it come from and how is it used? Explore the different types of energy, from the electromagnetic energy that keeps us connected, to the geothermal energy deep inside Earth. 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, including Marie Curie, Christina Lampe-Önnerud and Sophie Blanchard. Readers can also carry out cool energy experiments at home.
With easy-to-understand text written by STEM expert Dr Shini Somara 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 practical applications of STEM.
