"STEM to Story inspires students to learn using fun, engaging, and meaningful lesson plans that combine hands-on discovery in science, technology, engineering, and math with creative writing. Aligned with both Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards, STEM to Story gives teachers a wide range of field-tested lessons, workshops, and projects that have been created and classroom tested by professionals in each field. The workshop activities within the book are the innovative result of a partnership between 826 National's proven creative writing model and Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds, an initiative dedicated to connecting young people to the wonders of STEM through hands-on learning.
STEM to Story includes reflective observations by arts and science celebrities including Jon Scieszka, Mayim Bialik, and Steve Hockensmith. The dynamic lessons feature bonus activities, fun facts, and teaching points for instructors at every level. These quirky, exploratory lessons are sure to awaken young imaginations and passions for both STEM and creative writing while encouraging interest in scientific endeavors. Now teachers can make both science and writing a fun-filled adventure."
