More Super Cool Scientists! A Women in STEAM Coloring Book
A 2nd volume of Super Cool Scientists - a coloring and storybook celebrating women in science, technology, engineering, math, and more.
It’s official - people LOVE the original Super Cool Scientists coloring and storybook!
Super Cool Scientists #2 will feature another cohort of amazing women doing super cool work in science, technology, engineering, math, and more. I’ll be telling their stories through text and illustrator Yvonne Page is working with me again to tell their stories through visuals.
There are already 12 women on board to be a part of this second volume. Their fields range from veterinary science to aerospace engineering to climate science. These women also run companies, inspire young people, author books, and so much more. They are parents and partners - artists and activists. I can’t wait to share their stories with you.
Just like the original Super Cool Scientists book, this second book will be designed to empower women currently doing awesome STEM work and also to inspire young people to consider STEM careers. Using a coloring book format makes science concepts super approachable and the scientists themselves relatable.
Here’s to you, women in science and girls aspiring to be like them one day. Super Cool Scientists #2 is for you.
Risks and challenges
I learned a lot from publishing the original Super Cool Scientists book - especially from our successful Kickstarter campaign.
Since it is our second time around, I have a better sense of how long it takes to collaborate with the featured scientists, to research and write bios, to work with Yvonne to draw up illustrations and do the book design, and to ship out all the super cool rewards. Even though the timeframes for the last campaign were on point, I want to be generous in those expectations since this project is a part time gig for both myself and Yvonne.
My connections through past science and outreach experience, as well as now the connections through the original Super Cool Scientists book project, expand my network around the globe. That network helps us identify feature scientists, ask questions of a community that wants STEM to be more inclusive, and to promote the full Super Cool Scientists project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
