Get children really excited about science with this action-packed book that puts S.T.E.M. principles (science, technology, engineering, and math) in kids' hands. When a rich patron funds a pilot program to get children involved in S.T.E.M. subjects, five students are hand-picked for the project. Some of the students are excited to be there, and some of them couldn't care less. They are led by their mysterious teacher, who may or may not be a spy. When disaster strikes, the S.T.E.M. Squad starts learning…and getting involved. As they team up with top notch scientists, engineers, mathematicians, geologists, and others, the kids soon learn that applied science can be fun! In Flood: Race Against Time,, the S.T.E.M. Squad rushes in to a flood area to help place sandbags, divert the flood waters, and more. But when a makeshift reservoir gives way, the kids find themselves trapped!

Title: Flood: Race Against Time - S.T.E.M. Squad Author: by Aaron Rosenberg Published: 9-12-2016 Publisher: Barron's Educational Series Pages: 224 Genre: Children's Fiction, Sub Genre: Science; Ages 9-14 ISBN: 13: 9781438008059 ASIN: B01LOTHE2W Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4 Stars I received a copy of Flood: Race Against Time - S.T.E.M. Squad from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Description: From the Publisher Get children really excited about science with this action-packed series of books that put S.T.E.M. principles (science, technology, engineering, and math) in kids’ hands. Whether it’s a flood or a full-on blackout that hits southern California, the S.T.E.M. Squad is ready to learn and help! When a rich patron funds a pilot program to get children excited by S.T.E.M. subjects, five students are hand-picked for the project. They are led by their mysterious teacher, who may or may not be a spy. Some of the students are excited to be there, and some of them couldn’t care less. But as action, adventure, and problems present themselves, the S.T.E.M. Squad gets put to work. As they team up with top-notch scientists, engineers, mathematicians, geologists, and others, the kids soon learn that applied science can be fun! (Ages 9+) Flood: Race Against Time When a major flood hits the area, the S.T.E.M. Squad rushes in to help place sandbags, divert the flood waters, and more. But when a makeshift reservoir gives way, the kids find themselves trapped! An unusual book that has the reader involved and thinking about the story and how they would react in similar situations, there are several well done illustrations that show either part of the stories or something mentioned is the story. There are questions at the end to help discuss the book. As is my practice I read Flood with someone more age appropriate. In this case, a niece and two nephews. My nephew, Chad 14 did not enjoy it as much as Lana 12 and Kyle 9, both who said they liked it and would be glad to read another book from the series. They enjoyed reading about the squad and how they handled thing in the story. All of them liked the discussion section. Their own ratings average 4.125 so I gave Flood -A Race against Time 4 out of 5 stars.
