The Office of Math, Science and Technology Education (MSTE) and the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC) have been working together on a series of STEM-related activity books with a focus on engineering, circuitry, and coding geared towards ages 10 and up. These activity books will each feature 10-20 hours of activities that build on each other and offer young people opportunities for exploration and challenge them to problem-solve and think creatively and critically. The books will be sold through the National 4-H store and the first one, “Explore a Power Park: Paper Circuits”, will be available mid-September.

See the CREDC article for more details!
