STEM/STEAM Books for Grades 3-6

Diverse STEM Books for Upper Elementary School

STEM teaching has never been more important. It's essential that the books we choose reflect our students so that they can see themselves in STEM/STEAM professions. Our STEM book collections contain high-quality, engaging books and include the work of many award-winning and renowned authors and illustrators. We offer many science, technology, engineering, and math titles appropriate for third through sixth grade, many of which illuminate the contributions of people of color and other marginalized groups to the STEM fields. Learn about Soichiro Honda, who dreamed of engines and created one of the world's most successful car companies; Vivien Thomas, a medical pioneer whose work has saved thousands of lives; and Valentina Cruz, who works to protect the wildlife of the Galápagos Islands.

While most books are nonfiction, appropriate fiction has also been included. If you are looking for books to hook a STEM-minded student or hoping to bring a more culturally relevant approach to your STEM teaching, our books are the perfect resource.

Can't find exactly what you're looking for? Build a collection that truly represents your student demographics by getting in touch with us to build a custom school order.
