OVERVIEW

STEM education has never been more important. We need to make sure all students are literate in science, math, and technology so they can make informed decisions about their lives – their health, their communities, and our planet. We also need to prepare students for their future careers. Almost all of the 30 fastest-growing occupations in the next decade will require a solid foundation in STEM.

Our books make STEM topics engaging and meaningful and make STEM careers accessible to students of all ages. We offer a wide range of books. Our Cool Careers in STEM series introduces students to fascinating women and men working in STEM today. Our Key Concepts in Science series dives into the “big ideas” in life, Earth, and physical science and profiles a scientist or engineer doing fascinating research in each field.
