Created in partnership with the Smithsonian® Institution, this STEAM book set devoted to pushing the limits builds students' literacy skills while fostering curiosity, creativity, and innovation. Readers learn how astronauts train in water before going to space, how modern technologies like 3D printing have changed prosthetic devices for the better, and more. The hands-on STEAM challenges are ideal for makerspace activities and guide students through each stage of the engineering design process. The real-world examples give students insight into how the engineering design process is used to solve real-world problems. Each book highlights every component of STEAM: science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Students will make STEAM career connections through career advice from Smithsonian® employees. With dynamic images and intriguing text features to enhance the reading experience, the set will engage students' minds and imaginations.
