by STEMconnector


For the second year in a row, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) has released a list of the “Best STEM Books for K-12” in conjunction with the Children’s Book Council. The list is selected by volunteer educators from a book review panel appointed by NSTA, and it provides recommendations for the best STEM trade books available for students from kindergarten through high school.

“The list is full of books with thoughtful and educational stories that are bound to spark students’ imaginations and keep the pages turning,” said David Beacom, NSTA Associate Executive Director and Chief Content Officer. “We are thrilled to bring increased attention to these extraordinary books that help students build literacy skills while learning STEM content.”

The book review panel finalized on 22 STEM books from 359 submissions, and the list was chosen for its ability to inspire STEM learning for K-12 students, with topics ranging from the origins of chocolate to the hazards of fracking.

The Best STEM Books for K-12 list is currently hosted on the NSTA website here: http://www.nsta.org/publications/stembooks. It will also appear in the March issues of NSTA’s elementary, middle level, and high school journals for teachers as well as on the Children’s Book Council website!
