The chance to meet astronaut Kris Kornﬁeld is a dream come true for twins Sydney and Simon. But ﬁrst they have to come up with the most creative project about the Earth’s moon. While Sydney’s work is all about the art, and Simon’s is all about the data, neither seems creative enough to win the prize. But when they put their heads together, they incorporate S.T.E.A.M. thinking (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) and come up with a winning idea.
The third installment in the Sydney & Simon series, this kid-friendly story makes science concepts accessible and exciting.
