Looking for a book that will spark your kids' interest in science, technology, engineering, and math? Encouraging kids to get interested in science at an early age is essential. Kids with a background in science are less likely to get sidetracked by drugs and alcohol. Whether your child is interested in inventions, medicine, or technology, the Black and African American Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, and Innovators, Volume 1, is a great resource.
