And yet another idea for a STEM-related gift!
While not necessarily gifts in and of themselves, these books could be part of something greater. A reader sent in a terrific idea. Grab one of these (or others) and then put together a box of everything-you-need to do one or some or all of the activities, and that becomes the gift (with or without the book: but either way, you’ll still have it for reference…). No, that’s not a gift that everyone would like, but if you’re a homeschool teacher who’s not exactly STEM-centered, and you have a STEM-centered kiddo…well, a gift like that is like manna from heaven!
