STEM, STEAM, Make, Dream (International Center for Leadership in Education, HMH / January 7, 2022) by Christopher Emdin, explores the ways that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics can transform young people’s lives through learning. This includes reimagining our collective relationship to STEM by presenting it as more accepting and accessible than previously acknowledged.  To help all children claim their STEM identity, the book provides educators, policymakers, and community leaders with tangible ways to honour culture, increase equity, and encourage curiosity.
