"This is the story of Rosie Revere, who dreamed of becoming a great engineer". A gender-role-busting picture book about a dazzlingly inventive girl who sets out to create a flying gizmo using cheese-copters, paddles and tennis balls...inspiring a classroom of gadget-builders in her wake! As much about triumphing over failures as it is about celebrating aspiring engineers, this beautifully produced, award-winning, book has become a favourite amongst our customers, particularly schools and parents keen to encourage girls into STEM subjects. AND you can now get an accompanying activity book, a.k.a. "Rosie Revere's Big Project Book for Bold Engineers" which has up to 40 things to create and invent! Alongside superbly geeky information -such as different kinds of engineering, basic machinery- there are tips for designing machines which turns "thingies" into "gizmos", instructions for making a basic solar oven (using cookie dough and foil) as well as a catapult perfectly attuned to marshmallow-flinging. Scattered throughout there are also 'Real-World Problems' for budding engineers opt consider such as how we can save more water and how to harness wind/sun energy to cook with. Age 4-8 Hardback book 30pp and Paperback activity book 93pp For children who fancy themselves more as scientists than as engineers, check out Ada Twist, Scientist.
