National Engineers Week and Girl Day #GIVEAWAY: Ellie Engineer Prize Pack Ends March 19th

February 18 - 24 is National Engineers Week and February 22 was Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day.  I am thrilled to host this giveaway for the Ellie, Engineer Prize Pack.

National Engineers Week theme is Inspiring Wonder and that's what STEM is all about.  Science plays such an important role in our daily lives and this week along is a great time to share the importance of math, science and all things tech. 

Written by Jackson Pearce Ellie, Engineer is about a girl who wears a tool belt and creates woodwork in her backyard workshop. I love this! This year my Goddess too woodworking and the thank you note to my daughter's teacher was thank you for letting my Goddess know that even GIRL'S CAN WEAR TOOLBELTS.

Like my Goddess, Ellie loves to build in fact she is an engineer. With a tool belt strapped over her favorite skirt (who says you can't wear a dress and have two kinds of screwdrivers handy, just in case?), she invents and builds amazing creations in her backyard workshop. Together with her best friend Kit, Ellie can make anything. As Kit's birthday nears, Ellie doesn't know what gift to make until the girls overhear Kit's mom talking about her present--the dog Kit always wanted! Ellie plans to make an amazing doghouse, but her plans grow so elaborate that she has to enlist help from the neighbor boys and crafty girls, even though the two groups don't get along. Will Ellie be able to pull off her biggest project yet, all while keeping a secret from Kit?

Illustrated with Ellie's sketches and plans, and including backmatter with a fun how-to guide to tools, this is a STEM- and friendship-powered story full of fun!

 Designed to look like Ellie’s notepad, with pencil-on-graph-paper illustrations of her projects interspersed throughout the book, Ellie, Engineer inspires creative and crafty girls to get hands-on with their imagination. Ellie’s projects range from the simple (using a glass against a wall to amplify sounds), to the practical (the doghouse), to the fantastical (a bedroom security system featuring spikes) – encouraging readers to start small but think big. Ellie’s parents support her engineering experiments, with important safety tips sprinkled throughout, and her relationship with Kit is a glowing example of positive female friendship. They share their hobbies – Ellie likes to get her hands dirty, while Kit prefers ballet – reminding readers that there’s no wrong way to be a girl. Ellie’s hand-drawn tool guide at the end explains basic tools in accessible terms, rounding out this fun and funny adventure, and giving girls everything they need to be their own Ellie!
