"From Eclipse on a Stick to Enlightening Bugs, this book is the bee's knees. In other words, it's awesome." --Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and Our Wild Calling
"Megan Olivia Hall makes STEAM fun while demystifying the concepts behind the phenomena. Once you try a couple of these experiments, you and the kids will see the world differently. Megan changed my paradigm of engineering as an indoor activity. So many amazing outdoor engineering experiments! I honestly didn't know I could be an artist, but balancing rocks and making seed mosaics helped me and my kids (ages 6 and 9) find our inner Andrew Goldsworthy. I'm excited to continue exploring the STEAM all around us." --Josh Leonard, education director, Belwin Outdoor Science and Minnesota Environmental Educator of the Year 2016
"Megan Olivia Hall has given us a wonderful gift with these smart and fun interactive science activities. Each one is unique and easy to do, offering simple and deep ways to engage with the natural world and connecting us back to each other and ourselves." --Jean M. Larson, PhD, CTRS, HTR, Nature-Based Therapeutic Services, Minnesota Landscape ArboretumPosted 26 minutes ago
