Zeke Meeks vs the Stinkin' Science Fair

Zeke Meeks vs the Stinkin’ Science Fair
by D. L. Green
ISBN 9781404868038
Picture Window Books, 2012

In honor of our first Capstone Fiction post on STEM Friday, I wanted to give you a taste of one of the fun ways we’re addressing STEM through fiction. Meet one of our favorite new characters, Zeke Meeks! In this book, he’s taking part in a science fair at school. The book is filled with fun, basic science experiments that readers will love. Plus, there’s an experiment in the back of the book, and you can download an activity kit from CapstoneKids that includes details on an ice-cream-making experiment.

Funny, realistic, and packed with humor, Zeke will be a huge hit among second-to-fourth graders. (And many adults.)

Enjoy!

  1. I’ve joined in today’s STEM round up with a review of Nature Adventures by Nick Manning and Brita Granstrom http://www.playingbythebook.net/2012/05/04/exploring-outdoors-and-becoming-a-museum-curator/

  2. Great review – now I want to make ice cream. In the pursuit of science, of course! After a month of global warming books, I’m checking out some of the bird nests in my neighborhood. http://archimedesnotebook.blogspot.com/2012/05/checking-out-bird-nests.html

  3. My STEM review is Desert Seasons by Layne DeMarin. Those desert seasons aren’t like the others!
