Synopsis:

STEAM AHEAD! DIY FOR KIDS is an easy-to-follow, step-by-step instruction book for parents and children. It introduces kids between the ages of four and ten to the magic of electronics, game and toy designing, printing, understanding basic scientific principles and most importantly, they’ll have a blast making them. Inside this book you will find projects on LED cards, dance pads, handmade soaps, bubble blowers, Play-Doh circuits, cloud lanterns, scribbling bots and more!

Created by NASA STEM certified leader, Sumita Mukherjee, this book is jam packed with projects that will engage any bored child. The hands-on projects are broken into areas of practical implementation: Party, Build, Toys and Art. They have also been sorted according to levels of difficultly and STEAM relevance. Adding one or two experiments per week can get your child excited about science, inventions, science fair projects and overall classroom performance.

Review:

Sumita thoughtfully provides parents with a material list for the projects in the book, making it easier for parents to plan and prepare in advance, for the different projects. If giving as a gift, you could add many of the needed items (like copper tape, LED lights, cardboard paper, etc) to a large gift basket, with the book, and give a Christmas gift that will keep on giving for months after it is received!

My only quibble is that some of the projects DO require items you may NOT be able to find at your local box store, and may require some hunting or ordering via mail. Hence the list comes in very handy. Most projects older elementary kids can handle on their own, but there were a couple I would monitor, just in case. Miss Grace is already looking at using the book for several science projects for grades (!!!) and the book would be a great resource for homeschoolers! We highly recommend it!
