A great book and resources to inspire young girl and boy scientists. – Supported by the National Science Foundation.
I have a great book, YouTube videos, video games and student projects to inspire young girls and boys interested in science. They were created with support from the National Science Foundation. The book’s heroes are three young girl cousins who join their boy cousin to solve a scientific puzzle. The four characters star in many of our science videos that you can find on The Stardust Mystery YouTube Channel. Part 1 of the book and short stories based on the book can be found on our web site https://TheStardustMystery.com on the Book and Kids pages. There are also kid’s projects and links to the videos.
The resources are all about the story of Stardust. The Stardust theme is: we are made of stardust that was once in the body of Albert Einstein and the last T-Rex. The story is about atoms, their properties, kinds, and arrangements. It is about how atoms were created in star explosions during the evolution of the universe and shared by plants and animals (Including Einstein, the Last T-Rex and ourselves) during the history of planet Earth.
Here is what one science teacher and mother said about The Stardust Mystery book on GoodReads.
ALLIE RATED THE BOOK 5 OUT OF 5 STARS – IT WAS AMAZING
This book was great! I have discussed this with my students, and we are reading it together. They are loving the information presented in a fun and relatable way. They love seeing the different families that work together to complete a common goal. I love that it uses scientific concepts and principles that we are learning in the classroom. The authors do a great job of presenting the information in ways that provide the students with the content knowledge they need. As a middle school teacher, this is a great resource for my STEM classroom. We are currently working on the project portion that is provided for teachers. My students are enjoying the website and all that it entails. As a Science teacher, I recommend this book for all science teachers! As a parent, my own children are enjoying the story and learning things they have not learned in school yet! Allie is a Middle School Teacher and a Goodreads Book Reviewer.
Educators can get the Stardust Mystery lesson plans by sending an email to education@theBeamer.com and putting LESSON PLANS in the subject line.
I would be happy to tell you more about the whole Stardust Mystery Project. Maybe you can help get our resources to young girls and boys interested in science.
