She's Building a Robot:

Rate this book
For the Love of STEM, Robots, and Girl Power.

AZ is a young girl that finds herself in a robot building competition. Can she overcome crashes, explosions, and hackers to beat school bully and three-time champ, Dalk?

Smart and strong is the new pretty. In this funny, action-packed story about STEM for kids, the talented AZ fights gender stereotypes and enters a school robot building competition.

With the help of her mentor, Lucia, and her quirky friends, Li and 10, AZ works hard, solves puzzles, and deals with disasters. Together they learn the importance of friendship and collaboration, and build a robot named Ada--and confidence and leadership skills along the way.

Calling all stemettes, techgirls, and girls who code. Written to raise awareness about the challenges faced by women in science and other male dominated fields of STEM, She's Building a Robot brings a diversity of voices from different socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.

More importantly, it gives girls in science the opportunity to relate to strong, smart characters and real-life heroines, proving that sometimes reality is more inspiring than fiction.

If your child enjoyed books like The Fourteenth Goldfish, Women in Science, and Hidden Figures Young Reader' Edition, then She's Building a Robot is your next read!

AZ‘s story is very inspiring for girls exploring STEM. Looking forward to re-reading and enjoying the adventure with my niece! I highly recommend this as a birthday present for a girl you know who is thinking of writing her first line of code (or building a Robot!). I’m just imagining where I’d be if I’d read such a book when I was younger - would have saved myself so much ingrained self-doubt slowing me down!

I guess I have always been the biggest critic of my three sons activiities and this gives me the chance to put it in writing about something they have done - for a first effort I think the book encapsulates the mind of the young female striving to achieve in what is seen as a male dominated environment - topical you might say - how she overcomes adversity and doesn't give up really makes me think that anyone of that age (12-15) reading this book puts a number of bricks in the wall or steps for one to climb to the top - an easy read (even for me) that would fit into anyones library.

If you have kids in your life (or maybe you're just a big kid like me) and you want them to learn about teamwork, ethics, how technology can be a positive influence on the world & how embracing diversity in everything can be a superpower, then this is the book for you.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading this & will be sharing it with all my friends :)

My 9-year-old daughter received this book as a gift and she just couldn't put it down. Really engaging and accessible stories, she's still telling me all about it. Has def engaged her further in STEM.
