It’s never too soon to get kids interested in science and aviation – and drones are a great way to do it. Now there are two great new drone books for young kids to keep the interest going when you aren’t flying.
The books are developed and written by the Sharon Rossmark and Wendy Erikson, the talented team behind WomenandDrones, an innovative site for connecting and supporting women in the drone industry.
“The Fun With Drones: Coloring and Activity Book and Drone Girls and the Air Show Adventure are designed to empower parents, teachers, camp programs and scout leaders with a tool to introduce children to a popular STEM subject – Drones!” says Rossmark. “We know that drones are an exciting subject for students making it an ideal pathway for learning about STEM and aviation.”
Most of the characters pictured in the books are girls, which Rossmark says is a “purposeful, important part of our commitment to engaging more girls in STEM careers.”
“The drone books for children stems from our commitment to engage more children especially girls in STEM and aviation. Our educational theme centers on ‘learning through the wonders of flying robots,'” says Rossmark. “The books are designed to give young children a platform to see girls as drone pilots and girls interested in learning about aviation.”
The books targeted audience are younger children – they are ideally suited for story time, family time, camps, and after school programs.
The books are available now on Amazon, at the following links.
