Kid Power!
by Elizabeth Dozois

So many of us grew up hating science because of the way it was taught. If we want kids to get excited about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), we need to connect that learning to real-world power and discovery. KID POWER! follows two children who are trying to figure out how a huge boulder ended up in the middle of the school yard. As the mystery unfolds, we see kindergarten kids lifting a 100-pound concrete block with one hand and winning a tug-of-war where they’re outnumbered 20:1 – all with the assistance of simple machines. These high-impact experiences create an excitement that can fuel life-long learning. At the back of the book, you’ll find suggestions for ways to make simple machines come to life for the children in your life.
