Melissa Rooney reads from Eddie the Electron children’s book series

This week I talked to Durham author Melissa Rooney about her children’s book series, Eddie the Electron. She is a University of North Carolina Ph.D. in Chemistry who is big believer in STEM.

She knows that kids aren’t as fearful of science as adults think. She is confident that the sooner we expose our children to scientific ideas, the less intimidated they will be by such subject matter in the future. Science is part of literacy. We chat with her about the Eddie Electron stories, kids’ education, Durham Public Schools and more.
