  • STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics.
  • STEM education creates critical thinkers who can solve problems and best adapt to a rapidly changing world
  • STEM occupations are growing faster than any other sector. Most future jobs will require at minimum a working understanding of maths and science.
  • Each fun story in the STEM Storybook gently introduces key STEM concepts such as size, statistics, finance, probability, speed, rates of change, robotics, fractions, counting, acceleration and many more.

Counting and Addition in “Pirate Treasure”

In this example from “Faster Faster”, the story starts with a slow tortoise and progresses all the way towards a rocket

In “What Should We Do?” a wise elephant doesn’t believe a cheeky monkey and surveys the animals to get a statistically significant answer to that question:

MEET THE AUTHOR


I love reading storybooks to my young son and daughter, and like all parents I care about giving them the best possible start to life.

That’s why I created the STEM Storybook: a series of beautifully illustrated stories for children that gently introduce them to the key mathematical concepts they’ll encounter in their future lives.

As a Professor, father and multi-award-winning educational entrepreneur, I’ve spent my life innovating in education including creating STEM textbooks, action-packed maths workshops for young and old, a Hollywood STEM movie review series and even a maths novel for teenagers
