This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

G.A.S. Not your every day science reading!! and giveaway.

Welcome an all new kind of fun and educational reading for boys AND girls! Did I mention fun?? The G.A.S. series.

The GALACTIC ACADEMY OF SCIENCE is Tumblehome Learning’s keynote series.

GAS is designed to stimulate general interest in science & engineering and to encourage student participation in inquiry based STEM competitions through engagement in a fun and exciting adventure, mystery, CSI mission or other storyline embedded with both scientific content knowledge and methods. [STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering & Math].
Each book of the series follows a model, with different subject matter and storylines, and some different characters along the way.   All GAS books feature a group of middle school children (usually a boy & girl pair) from diverse backgrounds, facing an impending science fair project or other school or personal challenge.   Suddenly, the kids are faced with a perfidious present-day crime that needs historical knowledge of science or engineering to solve it.  Under the guidance of a Dude or Dudette from the Future (pictured above, Quarkum Phonon and Selectra Volt), the kids use a special device to travel through time and visit pivotal scientists of the past, gain key knowledge, solve the crime, ace the science/engineering/math competition, and become inducted into the GALACTIC ACADEMY OF SCIENCE, or GAS.

Check out these four books in the series........

Clinton and Mae take on a new G.A.S. mission–a journey across three continents and 4000 years to learn about concussion and the brain in order to nail a bribe-taker who loss Clinton and his team a game.

Benson, Anita, Ella and Shomari head back to the past to learn more about coding in the hopes of saving their science fair from the Evil Dr. G and his minions who are bent on destroying it.

When a stranger from the future tells Clinton’s timid summer camp tentmate to deliver a zombie or else, Clinton knows he has to help. Together, seventh graders Clinton and Mae take Sam on a Galactic Academy of Science mission to find out the truth about zombies

Benson and Anita think Dr. Brummagem’s feathered dinosaur fossil is a fake, but can they prove it?
