Chemistry is all around us! But what is it and where can you see it? Discover more with Everyday STEM Science – Chemistry.

Everything you eat, wear, see, touch is made of chemicals. Chemistry is not just found in a laboratory - it’s everywhere! Discover how the chemicals inside us allow you to move, breathe and feel, and how chemistry helps to protect you from harmful diseases. Meet the inspirational chemists and scientists who brought chemistry to life, including John Dalton, Annie Jump Cannon and Rosalind Franklin. A "try this at home" section shows readers how to create colourful foam and how to be an ice investigator

With easy-to-understand text written by an expert author, 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
