Indy Reads Celebrates STEM with Nyla Nova
Join us as we celebrate STEM during Women’s History Month! Nyla Nova and her STEMsational Mother Nakeisha will read her children’s book, Who is Nyla Nova? on March 11th at 2pm.
She will demonstrate some great STEM activities and experiments! Books will be for Sale!
The book tells the story of Nyla Nova who learned that she is a “STEM Superhero” with the ability to solve mysteries using her STEMpowers. Her mother, the “STEMsational Queen” has passed her STEMpowers down to her youngest child. Our mission is to encourage girls to believe in themselves and to develop confidence and skills in the areas of STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
I hope the publication of “Who Is Nyla Nova? The STEMsation” will spark interest in STEM plus show the fashionable side of the ladies of STEM, and that it will light up little girls’ imaginations on all the possibilities that await them. We are trying to increase the number of women of color in STEM by inspiring girls at a young age.
