Fiona is honoured to be part of the first Aussie STEM Star series, that celebrates experts in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Aussie STEM Stars is a fresh and unique series for children and young teens aged 10-13 years that focuses on our Australian STEM heroes. Each book is written by an award-winning children’s author and follows the real-life stories of Australia’s top scientists and inventors, chosen on the basis of their pioneering work. Themes explored in the series include childhood, school, family and formative experiences, what inspired them to pursue their chosen path, how they persevered in the face of challenges and what they have contributed to science in Australia.
Wild Dingo Press is proud of the release of the first three books in the Aussie STEM Star series featuring: -
• Fiona Wood: Inventor of Spray-on Skin by Cristy Burne
