Hannah Lee, science communicator and marine ecology PhD student:
Emily Hunt has truly succeeded in creating a book that not only offers fun, quick projects for all the family but also clearly explains why we should all be excited about STEM! Each activity is accompanied by clear illustrations, as well as references to future careers, which are all explained in a short easy-to-understand glossary. The mix of indoor and outdoor activities, as well as ideas of how to bring the outdoors indoors, is really great given the tendency of changeable British weather.
Each short project has its own explanation of connections to the built and natural environment, and the book is sure to spark curiosity and connection to our planet in both children and adults!
"This is the second in a series of podcasts where I focus on a specific area of English instruction. In this episode I’m delighted to be talking to Zoe Enser about how generative learning can be implemented in the English classroom."
