We are EXCITED to announce a Kickstarter launching our second children’s book in the fabulous STEAMTeam 5 series! 🙌🏼 👏🏽
It was our plan to make the stories into a series, and we’re honored that the demand for book two has been so huge!
The first book, STEAMTeam 5: The Beginning, was published in December of 2017 after successfully raising $30,000 in a previous Kickstarter campaign.
To learn more about the backstory, you can watch the video to the first campaign here.
You can also read reviews and get the first book here.
One of my favorite testimonials…
was when I heard of a girl loving the first STEAMTeam book so much that she carried the book around for three weeks, sharing it with her teachers and all of her friends.
Parents and kids of all ages are loving the first story – yay! In fact, one of my mom’s senior citizen friends bought one and loved it! She asked the same question, “When is book two coming out?!?!”
💜 Check out just a few of our STEAMTeam 5 fans 💜
The question we get over and over since launching the first book, STEAMTeam 5: The Beginning, is WHEN IS THE NEXT BOOK COMING OUT?!?!
Now, the second story, STEAMTeam 5: Mystery at Makerspace is available for pre-order on Kickstarter HERE.
💗 PLEASE, WE NEED YOUR HELP! 🙏🏼
STEAMTeam 5 is a Movement!
We believe that if young children (BOTH boys and girls) are exposed to strong, happy, curious female characters who use STEAM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) to solve problems, many more young women will see the pursuit of STEAM education to be normal and exciting, ultimately leading to more women pursuing careers in these important fields.
We feel strongly that we shouldn’t require a young girl to be exceptional in order to succeed in STEAM! Join us in showing boys that girls can do these things, too. Join us in showing girls that these are cool fields to study and they can do them, too!
We are passionate about getting young children excited about STEM/STEAM – not only to make them more employable later, but because forming and testing hypotheses, problem-solving, and overcoming obstacles are important skills for everyone to have. Like many of you, we’re parents of young children and we’ve become painfully aware of the shortage of STEM/STEAM role models and stories, particularly those aimed at young girls.
