Kids are natural scientists.  Kids love to ask questions, look under rocks, take things apart and (sometimes) try to put them back together again. Unfortunately, starting from a young age, many kids, in particular girls and minorities, start to shy away from science, technology, engineering, and math or STEM subjects. This is in part due to the lack of women and minority role models who look like them in these fields. You can’t be what you can’t see!

I founded CuSTEMized to encourage kids, in particular girls and minorities, in science by providing picture storybooks that depict them in science careers. Thousands of free personalized ebooks and hundreds of free and discounted hard copies of our first personalized book, The Little Book of Big Dreams, have already inspired kids and classrooms around the world!

We are currently working on a new personalized storybook called My Colorful Future that will focus on teaching important applied science concepts as well as showcasing the real women and minority scientists behind it all! Please check out our Kickstarter campaign for more information.

We would greatly appreciate any help in sharing CuSTEMized as a resource for encouraging kids in science and the Kickstarter campaign. If you are an illustrator interested in getting involved, please contact me at jean@custemized.org

Thanks again for your help and support!

All the best,
Jean

As a first year medical science student I find that I am more so dissuaded by the unceasing assessments, lack of sleep and ergo disintegration of sanity and of course... organic chemistry.
I feel like a motivational booklet for undergrad students should also be on the agenda Giggle

What a marvelous idea! I wish you the best with the outcome- I think it's certainly worthy of funding so I'll do what I can to spread the word.
