Review “Every parent or teacher needs a number of tools in their toolbox, and Awesome Engineering Activities for Kids is a great one. Fully indexed, you can open it to any page and find an interesting project. Recommended for kids or anyone with a basic desire to see how things work.”—John Grube, Electrical Engineer, Duke Energy, and father of four “Each of the activities in Awesome Engineering Activities for Kids includes hows and whys, extensions, and a STEAM connection. Including these areas elevates the book from being an activity book to a teaching tool. The supplies needed to explore each activity are probably already in our homes or classrooms. I love not having to go out to get supplies before we start an activity. We can pick an activity and start working on it right away.”—Deirdre Smith, teacher and blogger at JDaniel4's Mom “I LOVE this engineering activity book for kids! I am not an engineer or even strong in the subject, so you can imagine my excitement when I opened this book to find fun engineering projects that I can do at home with my son. It has clear instructions with fun facts and colorful pictures of the projects throughout. I can’t wait to share this with our homeschool co-op STEM class!”—Tressa Guillory, Homeschool Parent About the Author Christina Herkert Schul is a former classroom teacher with a master’s degree in education.
