We are so excited to be featured by Voice of America - VOA! Recently, they joined a 5th grade class at Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School who used our award-winning STEM books.

Science, Naturally is committed to working in and helping our community by giving kids (and teachers) the tools to explore their world through science, math, literature and now in another language! We love to see our books being used in the classroom. The kids enjoyed using them too, saying that “You get to do things yourself. You need to try new things, you don’t have to do what the teacher tells you. You get to try stuff that you think might work for what you’re doing.”

Check out the video and read the rest of the article.

Check out photos from the interview on our Show Photos webpage.
