Meet STEM Junior, a little character with some big ideas and a bunch of supersmart engineering friends. Have you ever wondered how a bridge stays up, or how your texts get from one end of town to the other, or how your raincoat keeps you dry? Well, you’re in the right place. Basher's STEM Junior: Engineering is packed with 40 vibrant personalities who are just itching to spill the beans. Let them tell you all about themselves and you'll be a top engineer yourself in no time.
And that's not all: "Top Engineer" boxes bring characters from the history of technology to life; "Great Inventions" panels reveal some of the world’s greatest engineering breakthroughs; "Applying Science" boxes explain key practical uses; and "Say What?" boxes put key vocabulary right where you need it.
With over 100 of Simon Basher's unique illustrations, Basher's Stem Junior: Engineering will help give 7- to 9-year olds a solid foundation in the key topics that make up the core STEM subject of engineering.
