Happy Book Birthday To Our 4 NEW Adventures In Makerspace Graphic Novels!

Here they are again, back in their library Makerspace! 

One of my favorite librarians, Ms. Gillian, along with four of her amazing students, Codie, Matt, Eliza and Cyrus, are back in another 4 titles that my friend and author, Blake Hoena, and I wrote with Capstone

In this new graphic novel series of Adventures in Makerspace, you will find low and high tech adventures again.
And of course, we love the graphic novel styled illustrations by Alan Brown.  They really bring these adventures to life in such a fascinating and creative way.  This series will surely hook our makers and readers! 

The Capstone site states, 

At Emerson Elementary, students Matt, Codie, Eliza, and Cyrus love hanging out in their library's Makerspace. There, an adventure is always about to begin! When Ms. Gillian presents the friends with STEM challenges, they must use their imaginations and creative thinking as they explore past creations, from movie sets to the Space Needle! Complete with a glossary and further reading list, as well as imaginative Makerspace ideas and a related activity, each book in this series is bursting with resources to spark students' creativity.
Their adventures even inspired a theme song which readers can access, along with an author interview and activity related to each book, via Capstone 4D, Capstone’s free augmented reality app.

We couldn't be more excited about these new titles and can't wait to share them with all of you and your students too! I especially can't wait to share them with the students and teachers in our library at Van Meter Community School in Iowa.  

You will find our new 4,
along with the first 4 books, here on the Capstone site
