"If your kids is curious about the world around them and loves to build and explore, then Awesome Engineering Activities For Kids is the perfect book to teach them how the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and math relate!

Filled with over 50 exciting STEAM projects with fun and catch names like Pipe Cleaner Maze, CD Hovercraft and Mini Nature Dam, Awesome Engineering Activities For Kids uses easy-to-find materials (many of which you'll already have on hand) and provides clear instructions and full-color photos for each project.

Written by a mom who's a former teacher, this book will be a perfect addition to your homeschooling library as well!

"This STEM book features 50 engineering projects for kids, most of which are very simple and use materials you probably have at home. While there are a few really interesting projects like making a scribble bot (electric toothbrush, pool noodle and pens put together to make a little moving scribbler that will draw as it wiggles around) and making a lemon battery, most of the projects are very simple.

Examples of the projects are building a house of cards, using 12 pieces of paper and masking tape to make as tall a tower as you can, making a marble run with cardboard tubes, using two cups and string to make a "telephone," cooking milk and vinegar to make a plastic that you mold and harden, making cars and boats out of materials like water bottles and CD wheels, making a musical shaker by filling plastic easter eggs with beads, using natural materials to make a dam and making a sundial with a paper plate and pen.

This book would really have benefited from far more photos. While most of the projects include one photo, they are often photos of the materials assembled in a pile. That does no good if you want to picture the end project, and in some cases step-by-step photos would have really clarified the directions, especially for kids who will be doing the projects on their own.

My rating system:
1 = hated it
2 = it was okay
3 = liked it
4 = really liked it
5 = love it, plan to purchase, and/or would buy it again if it was lost

I read a temporary digital ARC of the book for the purpose of review.

"Keeping children engaged and expanding their creative opportunities is a full-time job, especially for those who do not have a creative bent themselves. Add to that the national outcry for helping children, especially girls, develop an early interest in the field of engineering, this book is both timely and extremely beneficial to parents and others working with children.

The author has created a magnificent collection of projects which will keep youngsters involved. These STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) problem-solving activities will not only entice these young minds toward the engineering fields, but they will also help them develop the critical thinking skills which will serve them in whatever endeavor strikes their fancy. As Christina Herkert Schul points out, “being able to ask questions, imagine possible solutions, think creatively, and problem-solve are skills that will enable a child to be successful no matter what career they choose”.

Anyone who works with children will want to own this book. It is not one of those you read through and put down. It is one you give your child and stand back as their eyes light up. You will almost see their minds begin to work as they imagine building and crafting the various projects laid out in the book. You will see their excitement as they forget about the screen devise and begin to build things with their hands, solving problems, and going down new roads they did not even know existed, but now can’t wait to travel.
