STEAM Stories: The Back Garden Build (Engineering)

Written by Jonathan Litton

Illustrated by Magali Mansilla

Part of the STEAM Stories Series

STEAM Stories: The Back Garden Build (Engineering) Synopsis

Max and Suzy are bored and wish they had a playground in the garden - can the dynamic duo use their engineering know-how to build a swing, slide and see-saw? Challenges include: choosing the best material to use, how to measure things and work out how to test their designs. Next steps at the end of the book detail the engineering behind the story, with hands-on activities for children to experiment with the concepts explained, and find out for themselves how things work. STEAM Stories is a series of interactive picture books, each introducing a different STEAM topic: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. Join dynamic duo Max and Suzy in these action-packed problem-solving adventures which introduce children to key STEAM concepts through a gripping, interactive story. A review section at the back of each book highlights the key topics, invites children to relate the story to their own experiences and improves reading comprehension. This STEAM story introduces the concepts of planning and implementing a project. Together with Max and Suzy, young learners will explore the wonders of engineering.
