Imagine an initiative that promoted the benefits of STEM careers to young children whilst raising money for charity. Sounds great doesn’t it? That very process is happening right now, as a member of the BIM2050 Group has found out first-hand.
Adam Golden, BIM2050 member and Legal Executive at Costain produced “Bella’s Curiously Creative Building Adventure”, a story aimed at young people focusing on how one girl turns her science, technology, engineering and maths related dreams into a reality with the help of her Mum and her trusty cat.
Speaking about the book’s release, Adam stated: “STEM subjects are often overlooked however if we can encourage our children to remain inquisitive, imaginative and ambitious, they will hopefully be armed with a desire to study STEM and the belief they can improve the world around them. If we can inspire whilst raising money for great charities, that can only be a good thing.”
Bella’s adventure came about as a result of the Costain 150 Challenge, which is raising money for: British Heart Foundation; Macmillan Cancer Support; Prince’s Trust; and Samaritans. Four fantastic charities we are delighted to see benefit from such an inspirational idea for a children’s story – we love it!
Promoting STEM careers is something that BIMcrunch is also passionate about. Our Crunch Time interviews with Sasha Reed and Shari Zedeck promote this cause also, and we are excited to see Adam’s tremendous work follow a similar path.
The book costs just £5.00, and be purchased here.
