Going Places


Everyone in class gets the DIY go cart kit for the class race. Everyone follows the instructions in the box and works alone to make the exact same go cart model  for the race. Maya takes a different approach. Inspired by a bird and working together with Raphael- they  build something completely different and despite being laughed at - go off to win the race- together!


I like that in a story that puts emphasis on STEM abilities  (Science. Technology. Engineering and Math) the heroin is a girl.


The story is a perfect combination celebrating creativity, curiosity  and cooperation. It also beautifully brings to life the  concept of Bio-Mimicry  (innovation inspired by nature ) to children.  





To buy the book: 






I've added this video for additional inspiration about Bio Mimmicry
