跳出童話故事的公主角色 Ada Twist, Scientist
美國教育界近幾年盛行推廣以"STEM"為主題的課程。 它代表者Science, Technology, Energy and Math (科學、科技、能源 與數學) 主要是美國政府認知從小培養STEM人才的重要性，所以將大量教育經費提供給推廣STEM的機構與課程活動。Green Tots 英文繪本館計畫由今年起將這種STEM教育風潮以選書方式介紹給大家。
該書作者Andrea Beaty已經陸續出版2本以兒童為故事主角的STEM相關繪本：小小工程師Iggy Peck Peck和小小建築師 Rosie Revere。那麼這本書的Ada Twist又是誰? 她喜歡做些什麼？
Like her classmates, builder Iggy and inventor Rosie, scientist Ada, a character of color, 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. Not afraid of failure, she 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!
Inspired by real-life makers such as Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie, Ada Twist, Scientistchampions girl power and women scientists, and brings welcome diversity to picture books about girls in science. Touching on themes of never giving up and problem solving, Ada comes to learn that her questions might not always lead to answers, but rather to more questions. She may never find the source of the stink, but with a supportive family and the space to figure it out, she’ll be able to feed her curiosity in the ways a young scientist should.
