The A++ club: at the heart of the 21st century middle-schooler

Four years ago, the Third International Math and Science Study, took middle schools from seventeen nations including the United States, and compared the level of STEM education of students from each country. Fourth grade students from the U.S. scored about average, ranking ninth out of the 17 countries. By the 8th grade, however, the students scored significantly below the international average and were ranked above twelve out of seventeen.In simplest terms, middle school students are entering high school underprepared for STEM subjects.

My project creates a storyline of three cartoon characters, Abe, Aaron, and Amy. These characters make up the A++ Club. Through these characters, middle schoolers have the opportunity to learn (in a fun way) how STEM subjects are relative to their lives.

The Book

The Book

Much in our daily lives is defined in numerical terms. But what exactly is a number? ‘Why number’s are (kinda) a big deal’ tells the history of how humans began to count and why. The target audience for this book is children aged 9-12.

All illustrations and writing were done by me. This project as a whole took about 3 months of research, and 3-4 months of writing and illustrating.
