Children’s Book Project

Fostering Curiosity and Exciting the Next Generation

Let's go on a journey through Tastyland with Mike and his new friends, a wide variety of food groups! Or observe microorganisms that cannot be seen with the naked eye! Maybe learn more about yoga and mindfulness with Pep, an elf! There are numerous, fascinating topics and questions to be answered in the world of science and mindfulness. These fields are further explored and communicated to different audiences in First Year Writing Seminars (FWYS) with Dr. Thevenin and Dr. Baxter. During the semester, students collaborate and design children's books to communicate science and mindfulness to elementary school students.
