Milli loves original inventions and exciting new things. She is a tinkerer and inventor and “takes nothing and transforms it into something”. Living in a small village where everyone just wants ordinary, practical and familiar things is obviously not the right place for an inventive and unconventional mind such as Milli. Or is it?

This book is an encouragement and inspiration to all children who do things a little bit different. Unconventional problem-solving skills have been the starting point for many inventions in the past and sometimes it only takes that one special person that allows ideas and dreams to blossom. A curious mind and unconventional thinking can engineer change.

With our book recommendations, we want to help you spark a conversation that leads children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Have the courage to go beyond the obvious STEM connections and embrace all questions that may come out of your discussion with the children.
