Who was Ada Lovelace? Are problems fun to solve? How can I build a really tall tower with plain boxes? These are the kinds of topics and stories that STEM-themed books tell. There is a grand selection of books in our public libraries, from biographies, to how-tos, to novels, with STEM as the central theme. Experts remind us that young readers identify with heroes in many ways, including reading about them, so a book may start a STEM career pathway, too.
Thanks to our friends at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library for sharing this list of quality STEM reading.
