Sparking New Interest in STEM

Making Science Buddies content available in book form is an exciting new step for Science Buddies, one that Sandra Slutz, Vice President of STEM Education says she and her team of scientists have been looking forward to for years.

"On the Internet, kids come to us because they have a school assignment, or they already have a passion for science. A book is different though. It can be seen in a store, at a library, or at someone else's home and spark a kid's interest," said Slutz. "Many of us at Science Buddies are parents, and we know the power of having a child casually pick up a book and then become totally engrossed in the pictures and possibilities. We are thrilled to be putting our science and engineering projects in that format to expose even more students to the fun of observing, experimenting, and building."

Science Buddies is excited to have partnered with Lerner Publishing Group to make engaging STEM activities available to young readers. "Lerner is committed to creating books that foster creativity, problem-solving, and a love of learning," said Adam Lerner, Publisher and CEO of Lerner Publishing Group. "We are proud to partner with Science Buddies, an organization that excels at encouraging kids to experiment, tinker, and explore the world around them."
