Transcript

  • 1. Princess, Redefined: A Manifesto By Erin L. Albert The Amazing Adventures of the Princesses from Planet STEM A Kickstarter Book Project
  • 2. The Amazing Adventures of the Princesses of Planet STEM – book objectives: 1. To engage and excite girls ages 5-9 about careers in science, technology, engineering and math. 2. To redefine what it means to be a princess. Proposed manifesto attached for your consideration…
  • 3. 1. Being a princess isn’t about a look, a dress, a color, a crown, tiara, or a prince. Being a princess instead is a state of mind. Each is rare, glorious, and one-of-a-kind. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 4. 2. A princess never seeks perfection, because she realizes there is no perfection. Instead, she seeks excellence—in herself, and helps others to find their own inner excellence. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 5. 3. A princess is pleasantly persistent, fierce, and 100% authentic, even if her authenticity isn’t popular or mainstream. She listens to her gut. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 6. 4. A princess zealously and passionately advocates for herself and others, especially when others cannot advocate for themselves. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 7. 5. A princess welcomes challenges as opportunities to learn and shares knowledge with others, even when she is trying something for the first time, and even when she is scared. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 8. 6. A princess isn’t afraid of failure. Instead, she seeks out failure as an opportunity to learn and become a better person. She believes that nothing is really a failure anyway, if she tried her hardest to make something happen and learned along the way. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 9. 7. A princess flexibly collaborates, experiments with and embraces change, and can also work independently. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 10. 8. A princess is adventurous, curious, creative, resourceful, and intrinsically motivated to make the world a better place. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 11. 9. A princess is vulnerable, but she is not weak. Admitting, “I don’t know, but I’ll find out” does not make her weak. It makes her strong. It makes her even stronger when she DOES find out and follows up. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 12. 10. A princess seeks out different points of view, people who inspire, and diversity of opinion and debate in order to create positive change in the world. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 13. 11. A princess realizes that no one is coming to rescue her. She must save herself. #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
  • 14. What do you think? • Logon to Kickstarter – keyword “STEM Princess” – and leave a comment! • http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1820374 401/getting-girls-excited-about-stem-a- childrens-book #STEM Princess on Kickstarter
