Elementary kids are all naturally creative and curious. Keep the wheels turning with these fun reads on inventors & innovation. Check out our list of favorites below for home and classroom.
A note about your classroom library & science class: While all kids are naturally creative and curious, not everyone wants to be a scientist or engineer. Some students identify as arts-related or socially-related, not STEM-related. It doesn't mean they aren't interested in science, though.
Tech companies hire many people from non-STEM backgrounds to build the diverse teams needed grow strong companies. These include writers, artists, historians, communicators, analysts, lawyers, and specialists in law and human resources, to name some. The common thread among them all? A curiosity and interest in science.
The books on this list are a great way to engage all your students in science class and fuel their wonderful, big ideas! These stories will help them connect to science and the world around them by showing them the power of ideas and our own interests and talents."
