Why a Children's Book Author is Marching for Science!

Earth Day is April 22, 2017. What on earth will you be doing? I plan to be Marching for Science.

"I'm an author, advocate, educator, and cancer survivor. My award-winning children’s book "Nuclear Power: How a Nuclear Power Plant Really Works!" was released in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The book and I received harsh criticism from people who literally judged a book by its cover. It was the STEMS who defended me. The book is a creative spin on a schematic found in some science text books. Fear and fake news are fueled by misinformation and a lack of knowledge." #scienceisknowledge #sciencemarch #nuclearliteracy #childrensbooks #nuclear #scienceeducation Thanks to Amelia for sharing why she's marching for science.
