I was asked by the author, Diane Propsner, to review her books and so I received a FREE copy of Her STEM Career: Adventures of 51 Remarkable Women ( which I donated to a local school in my area) as well as a FREE proof copy of How She Discovered Engineering.
The author of the books Her STEM Career and How She Discovered Engineering, Diane Propsner, reached out and asked me to review her STEM books. Both of her books were written for middle school girls to further their interest in the STEM careers. She personally became interested in STEM careers in middle school.
Although they were written with that age group in mind, even older girls and women would be delighted with these books. As someone in the 30+ club, I enjoyed them both so much!
Both books are interesting, engaging, educational, exciting and empowering. Her STEM Career, in particular, incorporates a wonderful variety of STEM careers – such as careers in engineering, healthcare, research, business and software. Each woman’s story is personable, impressive and the stories behind their successful career paths are commendable. How She Discovered Engineering introduces eight additional female engineers and how they became interested in engineering as well as their career paths and where they are today. This book serves as a wonderful first mentor to the girl that may want to discover an engineering career path.
These books would be a wonderful addition to a school STEM library as a resource for students interested in STEM fields and teachers that are teaching STEM subjects.

I love books about STEM! I think more and more women should get into those fields and these books would make great gifts!
I’m going to have to check this one out…I’m constantly looking for ways to encourage my girls to participate in STEM activities.
I’ll have to check this one out, I love encouraging my kiddos to engage in STEM activities!
I love the idea of books that further the interest in STEM careers! That makes so much sense.
I’ll have to see if they have these at the library the next time I go. I would love to read these to my daughters. It’s so important to show our daughters role models that they can relate to. Thanks for sharing!
