Reader: The Wollstonecraft Detective Agency's The Case of the Missing Moonstone
Maker: Build a Hot air Balloon by Home Training Tools

In this middle-grade novel, Jordan Stratford plays with history a bit so that Ada Lovelace and Mary Shelley form a friendship focused on solving mysteries.  Making a delightful connection between literature and science, this book showcases Lovelace's analytical mind through the eyes of a storyteller, Shelley.  I loved Ada's hot air balloon haven she had above her home.  It was such a strong image throughout the book that it just screams to be a reader maker connection.

    1. In my discourse of the interdisciplinary approach I need to focus on an-
      other association and that is the connection amongst science and writing, which
      drives us level out of the domain of the humanities. The examination of this connection
      send depends on the presumption that science the same amount of as writing
