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.
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!
