About the book
Discover how geology is part of our daily lives with Everyday STEM Science – Geology.
Explore the wonders of Earth and see how geology is all around us, from nature's materials that are used to construct roads and buildings, to the minerals found in your mobile phone and drinks can. Witness a volcanic eruption, find out if there is water on Mars, unearth a dinosaur and meet the geologists and scientists who brought geology to life, including Zelma Maine Jackson, Georges Cuvier and Florence Bascom. Readers can also carry out cool geology experiments at home.
With easy-to-understand text written by STEM expert Emily Dodd, and lots of colourful artworks, photos and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter geology and why it’s even important at all.
The Everyday STEM series makes science relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their future success, these books show readers how we use science, technology, engineering and maths in our everyday lives. While the topics sound high-level and complex, this series makes these concepts age-appropriate and accessible. So, while we can’t promise to teach 9 to 11-year-olds quantum physics, we can explain in the simplest terms the practical applications of STEM.
