How does a radio work? What’s inside a light bulb? How can machines read barcodes? My Stem Day: Technology explains everything about the gadgets and machines you come across in everyday life. Taking you from waking up in the morning through to the last thing at night, you’ll find out how technology powers many of the interactions of the average day.

Every page is filled with amazing original illustrations which communicate technology concepts in a way that’s easy to grasp. Plus there are a host of experiments, projects and activities to try – making technology learning fun.

Review 2017

The book opens with a double page on what is STEM and how it works, giving children an introduction to the four different subjects. It then moves on to how technology is used throughout the day, starting with the technology behind different clocks.

After each double page of information is a double page of activities or experiments for the children to try that relates to the previous page.

At the back of the book are pages filled with activities and a quiz relating to the book.

All the pages are bright and colourful. They are easy to read and engaging too. This is a book that is hands-on and I can see it being used over and over again.

Review 2017

Again this STEM Science book opens with information on what exactly STEM is and how it works. In this book, we get to watch and learn as the people and animals in the book go through their day. This book covers all three sciences, biology, chemistry and physics.

The book is a great introduction to the sciences and includes fun things to learn about such as magnets, the Earth’s Magnetic Field, and how your body and organs work.

Like the other STEM books in the series, this one is brightly coloured, easy to read and will have children interested in the items they are reading about and also have them learning whilst having fun too.

There are experiments throughout to try and activities and a quiz at the back to join in with too.

What does it really mean when you give 100%? How does money work? Can you measure your volume while taking a bath? With the help of dynamic illustrations and fun activities, My STEM Day explains how marvellous maths is right behind a whole host of everyday activities. Follow the clock through an average day, and find out how maths makes a difference in a huge amount of activities outside the classroom.

The pages are filled with unique, fun and original illustrations, not to mention projects and experiments that turns maths from a scary challenge into a playful pastime.

Review 2017

After the initial double page all about STEM, we move on to a day with maths, from waking up and using the clock to tell the time or work out how long you slept, to working out how fast you move. The book works from morning until night-time when children get to learn about counting stars.

After each double page of information, there are experiments to try yourself, including working out ratios and probability in a fun manner.

This is a book that even those children that hate maths will love. It is colourful, eye-catching, written in an easy to understand manner and above all else is fun too.

How do traffic lights work? What’s the strongest shape? How can you build a super-fast zipwire? With the help of dynamic illustrations and fun activities, My STEM Day: Engineering takes you through the day and explains how engineering has a role in everyday tasks, from cooling your food to making your toilet flush. Discover how engineering powers everything from the journey to school to your night-time bath, and everything in between.

There are tons of experiments, projects and activities for readers to try themselves, and every page is filled with amazing original illustrations which explain engineering concepts in a fun and accessible way.

Review 2017

Beginning once again with information on what STEM actually is and how it is used. The book then moves onto different types of engineering a child might come across during their day, from their shower being powered by the boiler or their electricity from solar panels.

The book has lots of subjects and covers plenty of topics as well as giving the children a chance to work through some experiments too. Plus there is also fun activities and a quiz to complete at the back.

This is a book that children can dip into and learn something new. It has been written in an easy to understand manner with plenty of bright colourful illustrations throughout. It is a lot of fun and will have children engaging with the book and wanting to learn.
