Jasmine Florentine's new book introduces making and STEM to middle-schoolers. The book, "Hex Allen and the Clanksmiths", creates a fantasy world where real problems are solved by hands-on skills. Jasmine is driven to help young people understand STEM, not just as a field of study, but as an opportunity to apply their creativity as well as intelligence. She believes if more kids knew what STEM really was, they'd realize it offered something for everyone -- a no-brainer.

Jasmine has her BS/MS from MIT in in Mechanical Engineering. She's worked at FIRST Robotics designing play fields for robotic competitions. She lives in Israel but will be moving soon.
