Faisal Hossain publishes children’s books on STEM

Faisal Hossain, executive committee member of Future Rivers at UW EarthLab

Faisal Hossain, UW professor of civil and environmental engineering and executive committee member of Future Rivers at UW EarthLab, has published two books for young readers: “The Secret Lives of Scientists, Engineers, and Doctors,” volumes one and two, from Mascot Books.

The books will showcase “the struggle, growth and success” of 12 professionals in STEM fields, including a geneticist, a biologist, a cancer researcher and a scientist at the National Institutes of Health, among others. They will be written especially for readers from second to fifth grades.

With more volumes planned, the book series is a spin-off from a National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine effort called New Voices, aiming to widen access to science education. Read an article on the Civil & Environmental Engineering website.

Published in September, the book is available for order and will be in stores soon. To learn more, contact Hossain at fhossain@uw.edu.
