Youth Service America and Scholastic are partnering to give away 10 STEM-related(science, technology, engineering, and math) books a month, every month leading up to Global Youth Service Day in April. How can you win one of these great books? Just follow @semesterservice on Twitter.
On the third Tuesday of each month, beginning November 17, @semesterservice will ask a STEM or service related question. The first 10 to reply with the correct answer will win a free book from Scholastic that will support your own STEM-based teaching.
The first book:
"Exploring the Titanic: How the Greatest Ship Ever Lost-Was Found" (Paperback) by Robert Ballard.
Summary: Grade 4-8 In straightforward prose, complemented by excellent illustrations, the story of the Titanic 's first and final voyage as well as that of her rediscovery and exploration is told. The text captures the drama of both the night of the sinking as well as that of the discovery of the great ship on the ocean floor. The technically accurate and lucid explanations are greatly enhanced by Marschall's stunning paintings, as well as by diagrams and current and period photographs.
