Get ya geek on with this girl gang as they design, make, game, hack, code & more!
Written for girls aged 7-12, the Girl Geeks series encourages young women to think about technology, gaming, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Girl Geek Academy’s book series is a fictional story covering the lives of four young girls. Think of it like The Saddle Club for technology, or The Baby-Sitters Club for gaming.
The first book is about a hackathon. It’s a competition where people solve problems through technology. Four girls, Hamsa, Eve, Niki, and Maggie are thrown together as a team — a girl gang! They must put aside their differences and work together. Each book is designed to follow one of the girl’s journeys. The girls navigate friendships, take risks, and “embrace their inner geek”.
The series is written by the wonderful Alex Miles in partnership with Geek Girl Academy. Based in Melbourne, Alex has written in the Zac Power series and published children’s series.
If you know any young girls, this is the perfect series to get them into gaming and technology. Or just read it yourself. Even as a grown adult, these books are a fun read!
