Explorer Academy Books
Summer is a great time for kids to expand their minds, so you’ll want to check out the National Geographic Explorer Academy books.
The main character is a 12 year old boy, so the book has appeal for kids in that age range. Younger kids who are ready for chapter books will like it, and so will older kids.
These adventurous books are good entertainment, but they’ll also encourage interest in STEM fields. Children who use their brains can accomplish much.
The first two novels and an activity book are out now, but book 3 is on the way. The Double Helix will be published this September.
Since the books are from Nat Geo Kids, you know they are great!
Cruz leaves his tranquil home in Hawaii to join 23 talented kids from around the globe to train at the Explorer Academy with the world’s leading scientists to become the next generation of great explorers.
But for Cruz, there’s more at stake. No sooner has he arrived at the Academy than he discovers that his family has a mysterious past with the organization that could jeopardize his future.
In the midst of codebreaking and cool classes, new friends and augmented reality expeditions, Cruz must tackle the biggest question of all: Who is out to get him, and why?
Cruz, Sailor, and Emmett, along with their new ally Bryndis, embark on their first globe-trotting mission aboard the ship Orion.
He jumps right back into school and starts using the latest technology in submersible underwater dives.
However, Cruz is soon reminded of the dangers of exploration when his equipment fails and he almost drowns.
Determined to keep his eyes on the prize, Cruz sneaks away to try to find answers. But he unknowingly lures his friends into bigger trouble.
When a friend of Cruz’s mom meets an untimely end, Cruz’s luck really seems about to run out and the questions multiply.
Kids test their knowledge of ancient codes and ciphers in a series of head-scratching puzzles designed to outwit even the most clever cryptographers.
When kids successfully navigate the codes, they are rewarded with a first-class tour of the Academy.
