Today we have a children’s book for Pride Month, STEM by Emilie Dufresne and designed by Danielle Rippengill.
Meet ten people from across the LGBTQIA+ community who have made an impact in STEM fields, from Polly Arnold, who is a chemist at Berkley to Alan Turing, a mathematician who was code breaker during WWII and did early work with computers.
The introduction explains the definitions of certain words, like what does it mean to have pride and what the letters LGBTQIA+ stand for. There is a frank discussion of the differences between sex and gender. The back matter includes tips for being an ally, an extensive glossary, and an index.
STEM helps us remember being inclusive is important. When students see themselves reflected in their curriculum, they are more likely to pursue STEM careers. STEM is also an easy-to-read introduction for those who want to learn more about the LGBTQIA+ community and being an ally — regardless of age.
