With easy-to-understand text written by an expert author, fun callouts, and lots of colourful artworks, photos, and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter energy and why it’s even important at all.

The Everyday STEM series makes science relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their “future success,” these books show readers how we use science, technology, engineering, and maths in our everyday lives. While the topics sound high-level and complex, this series makes these concepts age-appropriate and accessible. So, while we can’t promise to teach 9 to 11-year-olds quantum physics, we can explain in the simplest terms the purpose of, and practical applications for, STEM
