Join a group of four kid detectives and help them find out about STEM while developing problem solving, observation and deduction, and investigating skills.

Our four detectives, Farah, Amelia, Mohammad and Sam, are excited when they see their school installing solar panels and a wind turbine. A few days later, on a sunny but windy day, the power goes out halfway through a science lesson. The kids decide to investigate why the solar panels and wind turbine are failing to provide the school with the electricity they should be generating.

With the help of Isla’s mum, Luan, an engineer the four friends learn how solar and wind energy works. The children (and reader) uncover what has gone wrong and what is preventing the solar panels and wind turbine from doing what they are supposed to do. The story ends with the children figuring the fixes needed and telling their teacher.

Featured interactive elements:
Looking for clues in the illustrations

Through interactive adventures that combine facts, brain-teasing puzzles and lively illustrations, the books impart STEM knowledge in an original way to inspire a love of the subject. The story in each book will have the reader solving puzzles, finding clues, cracking secret codes and uncovering mysteries.
