National STEM Day is November 8th and National Geographic Kids is celebrating in a BIG way with new releases that inspire and allow kids to explore the fields of science, technology, engineering and math -- and have fun doing it!  

On behalf of Nat Geo Kids Books it's my pleasure to offer you the opportunity to win all SEVEN titles listed below. The 7-book "National Geographic Kids STEM Spectacular Prize Pack" has an ARV of $96 and is open to US residents only 

Just Joking Science (ages 8-12, paperback)

Who says science can't be silly? Just Joking Science features 300 science-themed jokes that are scientifically proven to leave kids laughing. Jokes about all kinds of science stuff―kooky chemistry, funny physics, dinosaurs, space, and more―is combined with fast STEM-centric facts and 10 stories of real-life scientific experiments that are almost too wild to believe. Sized just right for Christmas stockings, back packs and back seat/holiday travel boredom busting.  

Brain Games: Experiments (ages 8-12, paperback) - Based on the hit National Geographic TV show Brain Games!

Discover what makes your mind tick. Explore the secrets behind smell, taste, touch, and vision. Find out how to trick your friends into thinking they taste something they don’t. Then turn the tables as you try to outsmart your own brain. Put your own mental powers to the test with tricky quizzes, optical illusions, and more. Learn about phantom sensations as you make your brain think your nose is six feet long! Each kid-friendly experiment is paired with step-by-step instructions, vibrant photography, and intriguing explanations of the neuroscience at work. Mind-blowing topics include:

* Senses: Test your powers of sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing.

* Brain and Body: Explore how your mind knows where your body is, how to play brain games with your friends, and secrets behind superhero super poses.

* Thinking: Challenge your memory, strength of the hive mind, puzzle power, mind-reading abilities, and concentration.

* Reactions: Put your reflexes to work to catch, dodge, check snap judgments, and more.

Can't Get Enough Space Stuff (ages 7-10, paperback) 

Featuring more than 200 extraordinary illustrations and photographs, detailed diagrams and infographics and a winning combination of comprehensive articles that do a deep dive into outer space research, fast facts and first-hand accounts from experts, Can't Get Enough Space Stuff is the ultimate book for space enthusiasts.  This book covers it all -- get the scoop on space food, space junk, space volcanoes and NASA's future plans for reaching Mars and Europa.  Learn about how scientists are looking for life on other planets, cutting edge space technology, mind-blowing black holes and the International Space Station.  Hands-on activities you can try at home are a terrific resource for STEM studies and science fair projects.  

Break Down: Explosions, Implosions, Crashes, Crunches, Cracks, and More ... a How Things Work Look at How Things Break (ages 8-12, hardcover)

This book explores how things break down, crack, explode, crumple, and shatter. This fun, unique take on a how-things-work book explores the world through the lens of what it takes for things to, well, not work. In these vibrantly illustrated pages, you’ll peer through the smoke and rubble of controlled demolitions to discover the properties of building materials. Then get a glimpse of the inner workings of a cracked cell phone screen, peek carefully at mega-avalanches and sinkholes, and hold on tight as wrecking balls swing and car crushers crunch metal. Buckle up with crash-test dummies and travel back in time to explore the world’s most famous failures (looking at you, Leaning Tower of Pisa).  Featuring hands-on activities that walk kids through their own experiments in destruction, Break Down! will change the way you look at the world.

Join Izzy Newton and her five brainy buddies in this fun three-book FICTION series, where science and tech reign supreme!

It’s not easy making the jump from elementary school to a middle school with 900 students. but for the S.M.A.R.T. (Solving Mysteries And Revealing Truths) Squad, it’s all about relying on the value of friendship and the power of science to help them think their way through all kinds of sticky situations. And when middle-school mishaps happen, the Izzy and her five friends (the S.M.A.R.T. Squad!) use their collective skills and the power of STEM to bring order to their school.
