Friday Fun: STEM Friday

What’s STEM? It’s an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, and it’s used to describe anything—from curricula to careers to books—that draw on or explore those fields of study.

STEM Friday is a weekly online celebration of books and activities that explore themes of science, technology, engineering and math. Every Friday, book bloggers across the internet share their thoughts on STEM topics, and every Friday someone compiles the links to all their posts so that you can peruse them at your leisure.

Why am I telling you this? Because today is STEM Friday, and I’m the host.

If you are a contributor, leave me a link in the comments section. If you are a reader, check back throughout the day. I have no doubt my fellow STEM-sters will highlights some great titles.

First up is my own review of What’s for Dinner?: Quirky, Squirm Poems from the Animal World by Katherine B. Hauth, which gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from me.

Next up, we have Shirley Duke's new book Environmental Disasters over at Simply Science. Take a peek.

You should also check out Wrapped in Foil for a great review of Cybils nominee The Manatee Scientists by Peter Lourie. Thsi book is part of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's highly regarded Scientists in the Field series. Thanks, Roberta.
