“Ada Twist Scientist”: The celebration of creativity and perseverance by Andrea Beaty.

A book about inquiry for kids, and the required dispositions that one needs to be a scientist, primarily curiosity and the need to keep asking questions. It’s part of an admirable series Beaty is doing to get kids into STEM fields, such as Rosie Revere, Engineer, and Iggy Peck, Architect.

Scientist Ada has a boundless imagination and has always been hopelessly curious.

Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose?

When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it’s up to her to find the source.

What would you do with a problem like this?

Not afraid of failure, Ada embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. But, this time, her experiments lead to even more stink and get her into trouble!
