FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Author Seeks To “S.T.E.A.M.” Summer Learning Loss
New S.T.E.A.M. Focused Children’s Book Released
Just In Time for Summer Break
COLLEGE PARK, MD, May 11, 2018 — According to the National Summer Learning Association, by the time children reach 5th grade “summer learning loss can leave low-income students 2.5 to 3 years behind their peers”, with losses most notable in S.T.E.A.M. skills.
For author Roman Sudan Montagueo this is unacceptable. “Twenty-two States have already passed summer learning legislation, but until it’s implemented, communities have to get more involved. Summer is a prime time for kids to explore the STEM skills they learned throughout the school year.”
Montagueo’s passion for STEM naturally integrates into everything he does, including the creation of the Ocean Bowl series. “Becoming a change agent for our world starts with our children. The mission is to evangelize, engage and promote literacy, conservation and S.T.E.M. Keeping their attention has become a greater challenge. Engaging them early with artistic S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) activities; I believe we will inspire a greater future for our communities.”
Montagueo’s first book, Orias’ Rippin Adventure, explores the underwater world of an exuberant Snubfin Dolphin, Oria, who’s zest for life leads her into a heart-pumping adventure that requires problem-solving and teamwork to survive.
Limited-availability, signed copies of Orias’ Rippin Adventure can be purchased through the Ocean Bowl website. Unsigned copies can be purchased at Barnes & Nobles, Books a Million, and Amazon. Review Copies Available Upon Request.
