Description-

  • A woman waves her hand and her car roars to life. She touches her unadorned ear to take a call in the car as she drives to a cryotherapy parlor. She is a biohacker. What other technologies might humans use to optimize themselves? In STEM Body: Biohackers, readers will learn about three types of biohacking, from body implants to DNA manipulation. They will learn the stories of the scientists and engineers who have experimented with hacking their own bodies, pushing the envelope of what makes humans human.

    At just 32 pages, Full Tilt Fast Reads help striving middle school readers build reading stamina and stay engaged with high-interest low-level content and dynamic topics.

    October 1, 2020
    Grades 4-8 Reading this entry in the STEM Body series (4 title) feels like you're stepping into the future, with its talk of transhumanists, biohacking, grinders, and cyborgs; however, these subjects define the lives of a small but growing number of people living today. Embracing the belief that technology can be used to evolve the human race, transhumanists seek to improve their bodies and minds through biohacking, which might take the form of implanted RFID chips, gene editing, or Nootropic supplements. The book introduces some of the people at the vanguard of this movement?primarily wealthy white men?but it also explores some potential medical applications. Graphic spreads break down certain concepts into STEM components, and a quiz and writing activity conclude. A fascinating glimpse into a growing tech trend.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2020, American Library Association.)

    Gr 5-8-This series explores the future possibilities of STEM advances. Each title offers an attention-grabbing introduction that reads like the opening scene of a science fiction film. There are high- and low-tech examples of STEM modifications to the body, from wearables that track sleep patterns to designer babies. The historical time lines list advances and discoveries in science and pair well with the spotlighted individuals who are not only scientists, but also cancer survivors and celebrities. Topical breakdowns in highlighted chapter sections clearly indicate how each concept uses science, technology, engineering, and math individually rather than as a general catchall of STEM. Biohackers is the benchmark for the series. It discusses ethics, laws, and personal safety alongside cutting-edge ideas, such as electronic implants. VERDICT Teens and tweens will appreciate the futuristic ideas in this series on STEM and the body.
