Everyday STEM Science—Geology (Hardcover)
Discover how geology is part of our daily lives with Everyday STEM Science—Geology.
Explore the wonders of Earth and see how geology is all around us, from nature's materials that are used to construct roads and buildings, to the minerals found in your cell phone and drinks can. Witness a volcanic eruption, find out if there is water on Mars, unearth a dinosaur, and meet the geologists and scientists who brought geology to life, including Zelma Maine Jackson, Georges Cuvier, and Florence Bascom. Readers can also carry out cool geology experiments at home.
With easy-to-understand text written by STEM expert Emily Dodd, and lots of colorful artworks, photos, and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter geology 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.
Emily Dodd loves science and wildlife. She is the author of picture books and non-fiction science books, a screenwriter for CBeebies and a writer of BBC radio plays for children. Emily spent several years working in museum education and has written science shows, workshops and stories for the Scottish Seabird Centre, Edinburgh International Science Festival, the National Museums Scotland and Our Dynamic Earth. Emily was the 2012/2013 Scottish Book Trust Reader in Residence at Leith Library. She once performed a poem about puffins to the Queen.

He loves nothing more than getting a brief through that covers a subject from all the way across the world - whether that’s the animals and inhabitants of Yosemite Park, Chinese Inventors, Victorian Ghosts or girls being rescued from towers by giant owls.
