This book, created in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, explores the science behind mummification. It's an informative text that builds students' reading skills while engaging their curiosity about STEAM topics through real-world examples.
The book also features a hands-on STEAM challenge that guides students through the engineering design process. It's perfect for makerspace activities and helps students make connections between STEAM concepts and real-world careers. Finally, the book explores engineering innovations that have solved real-world problems. It's a comprehensive resource that touches on all aspects of STEAM: science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math.
