A series of books
STEAM on the playground
It's a series of stories about two sisters, Lyra and aurelia, who are learning about the world through steam education.
Concept

We'd like to present a series of books for kids 2+ based on STEAM education. The readers will be able to explore the world and get a new scientific perspective on what they are doing on everyday basis. The first title is "STEAM on the playground".

Two sisters, Lyra and Aurelia, are studying science whilst having a great time on playground with their mom and other kids.

Are they moving down the slide? Yes, but also studying friction.
Are they playing in the sandbox? Yes, but also learning about cohesion and adhesion (that's actually why sand is so sticky!).
Are they feeding ducks on the pond? Yes, but also investigating why objects float or drown.

Other titles of the series include:

"STEAM in the forest"
"STEAM in the kitchen"
"STEAM in the city"
"STEAM on the beach"
"STEAM in the amusement park"
"STEAM at the lake"

What's inside of "STEAM on the playground"?

Multiple situations each kid faces every day.
Why are the swings squeaking? What is a sound?
Can we still play in the rain?
What does bring water to the sky? An elevator?
Why doesn't Mr. Worm want to be touched?
Should I feed ducks with bread?
Do pinecones float or sink?
When will the snack time be?
What special can we see in a seesaw?


The book helps to notice unusual STEAM scenarios in everyday routine and to turn a seemingly insignificant experience on the playground into a fantastic scientific expedition.
