This post was sponsored by the ‘Stardust Explores the Solar System’ Kickstarter campaign.
We love stories about people being inspired to create something, and successfully bringing their ideas to fruition with the help of crowdfunding. Inspired by the TV series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Bailey Harris and her father Doug have already published one amazing kids science book, My Name is Stardust, via Kickstarter, and with that success, brought their message of scientific literacy for kids to a much wider audience. Now, they return with a follow-up, Stardust Explores the Solar System, that will bring readers from the Big Bang to the formation of our solar system, and beyond.
The best news is that they’ve already passed their primary funding goal, and blown by their first stretch goal. Now they’re setting bigger stretch goals, unlocking new reward levels, and adding swag that backers can get, even at the most basic levels.
Now’s the perfect time to get in on the campaign, and even at a price as low as $12 you can get a special book that will help inspire your kids to explore the wonders of science (though we recommend one of the slight higher levels where you can get both books in the series).
