Stuart Tyson Elmo Morgan, or STEM as his friends and family affectionately call him, loves his community, friends, and learning almost as much as he loves his family. So, when STEM's dad suffers an injury during the family game of soccer, STEM sets out to ensure his dad doesn't lose his mail carrier job. What STEM comes up with to help his dad continue working amazes.
In the end, the bourgeoning engineer not only makes his parents proud, but he reminds us all about the power of love, the imaginative spirit of a child, and the universal importance of dreams.
The Amazing World of STEM is the perfect book for any child who is intellectually ambitious, globally, and culturally curious, and compassionate. Co-authors, son and father, Naeem K. Turner-Bandele and Nathaniel A. Turner craft a picture book illustrated by Keva M. Richardson that exemplifies and promotes diversity, the best of humanity, and science, technology, engineering, and math.

About the Author
As a zealous advocate that every person has an opportunity to maximize their human potential, Nate shares through courses, workshops, and conferences 'The Life Template,' a backward design life process he first developed to help his son meet the rigorous educational requirements of the top colleges and universities. Turner created 'The Life Template' in 1994 to make sure his then-unborn child would meet the admission criteria for Harvard University: intellectual astuteness, global competency, and humanitarian centered.
Without means of wealth, privilege, legacy status, fraud, bribery, cheating or Adobe Photoshop, Turner's son not only met Harvard's admission benchmarks (i.e., test scores in top 1%, 33 college credits, proficiency in four languages, lived abroad playing soccer for more than a year; and started a foundation to address teen homelessness); he eviscerated the profiled criterion by his sixteenth birthday. At present, Turner's son is an Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. student at one of the nation's premier graduate engineering schools. Today, those tools, techniques, and strategies initially created to help his child thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are educational and life development staples for students, parents, and organizations all over the country.
Turner holds multiple degrees, ranging from Accounting (History Theology and Law (Juris Doctor). The diversity of this TED speaker's formal education, combined with a wide range of personal experiences and professions, makes him a modern-day Renaissance Man and a highly sought-after speaker.
When Nathaniel's time on the planet is up, the self-described Humanity Propulsion Engineer hopes to be remembered merely as a man who did his best to leave the earth better than it was when he arrived.
Naeem Khari Turner-Bandele is an Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. Candidate at Carnegie Mellon University. The former NREL SULI participant and National GEM Consortium Associate Ph.D. Fellow earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Santa Clara University in 2018.
Naeem is relentlessly pursuing his goal to change the world, which includes a commitment to reduce power and energy disparities in underserved communities, improve childhood literacy, and increase minority opportunities in STEM. The multilingual author of "What Are We Gonna Do Today?" and "The Amazing World of STEM" has also served on the Region VI Regional Executive Board and the National Executive Board of the National Society of Black Engineers. Naeem is a co-founder of The Raising Supaman Project and The League of Extraordinary Parents.
