Description of this Book

Rockport Publishing's creative engineering extraordinaire, Lance Akiyama, returns again with The Zoom, Fly, Bolt, Blast STEAM Handbook, featuring 18 STEAM projects to get kids doing, thinking, and building! There is new emphasis in education to introduce STEM and STEAM to children earlier in life, often in elementary school. Just take a look atschools' shifting curricula, the explosion of maker spaces around the country, and demand by parents to have their children engaged with STEAM acitivities. The Zoom, Fly, Bolt, Blast STEAM Handbook gives parents and kids ages 6 to 10 a selection of 18 engaging projects to build together. And when they're finished, they'll have personalized creations that fly, race, and blast off! Make an automaton, a pneumatic machine, a suspension bridge, a flexible hand, a crash-test car, a (working) vacuum cleaner, and a dozen more ingenious, kid-tested projects. This project book is the latest title by Rockport's creative-engineering rockstar, Lance Akiyama, (who you may remember from Rubber Band Engineer, Duct Tape Engineer, and Launchers, Lobbers, and Rockets Engineer) and was made in cooperation with Galileo Learning. Galileo Learning operates 70 innovation camps in California's Bay Area (where Lance is a proud curriculum developer) and in the Chicago area. Each of Galileo's project are tried, tested, and support Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for elementary schools.
