STEAM Lab for Kids is an art-forward doorway to science, math, technology and engineering.
While many aspiring artists don't necessarily identify with STEM subjects, and many young inventors don’t see the need for art, one is essential to the other. Revealing this connection and encouraging kids to explore it fills hungry minds with tools essential to problem solving and creative thinking.
Each of the projects in this book is designed to demonstrate that the deeper you look into art, the more engineering and math you’ll find. There’s a science to great art. From graphite circuit comic books to edible stained glass, young engineers and artists alike will find inspiration.
"Liz Heinecke's books would have been perfect for me when I was a kid: I grew up with an intense scientific curiosity about the natural world around me and the chemical world underlying it. Her home-brewed experiments would have captivated me. Now as the father of a 10-year-old "kitchen pantry scientist" and slime-maker, I appreciate Heinecke's work all the more. Busting boredom is excellent in itself, but making a kid feel like a scientist while they're having fun - that's brilliant." -Dan Wilson, singer, songwriter, musician, producer, and visual artist whose songwriting resume includes "Closing Time" "Not Ready to Make Nice" and "Someone like You."
