Wild STEM - School Library Journal

Full-page photographs alternate with text pages to introduce readers to STEM ­careers in various natural settings. Each title focuses on a particular segment of the natural world such as forests, oceans, or farms. The narrative offers details of jobs like ­paleontology or aerospace engineering, and photo captions offer additional details about oceanographers, arborists, and beekeepers. Two “Get Wild!” activities are included in each book, with a materials list, photo, and step-by-step directions. Readers can create their own DIY seismograph, experiment with how blubber works, and enjoy other demonstrations or projects. Back matter includes a glossary, an index, and a QR code to access online resources. VERDICT Very useful for introducing STEM careers, classroom research on careers in STEM, and satisfying individual curiosity about the various jobs available in “wild” settings.
