The Power Chronicles: Akilah Finds Her Power

Do you love graphic novels? Follow this new STEM adventure for science lovers in grades 5-8.

No cell phone, TV or electronic devices?!

A powerful storm knocks out the power at Akilah’s house. With no cell phone, TV or other electronic devices available, the young girl climbs into bed with a solar yard light she brought in from the yard and starts to read a book about women leaders in math and science.

The light spills across the bed where a science trophy from her school’s science fair gleams softly in the shadows.

When the iPad on her bedside table starts to glow, Akiliah hears a whoosh that transports her on a journey of science and adventure.
