About the Book:
Two microchips named SOIC and SOT go on a journey through an electronics assembly line. From shipping boxes, through the soldering process, assembly and test, the chips learn about the world outside, and what they were born to do! The perfect picture book for our littlest electrical engineers and technicians to be.
SOIC and SOT (and Friends) is a picture book series created to help provide a first step into the future for children, parents and teachers, and especially those who are not already involved and conversant in technology and microelectronics careers. The specific focus: the microchips in every electronic device kids use.
From talking pigs to steam engines and aardvarks to trucks, children's books cover a huge range of people, places and things that are rarely part of a child's day to day life-but what about the microchips that make up the toys and tools they play with every day? For a free and fair technological society to flourish, it is critical that that all kids are at least introduced to what's under the hood in their high-tech laptops, tablets and smartphones, just as they learn about birds, trees and trains or letters, colors and counting.
There are many, many more people involved in electronics than just engineers and scientists. And while not everyone is destined for advanced STEM college degrees, every child can be introduced to, benefit from and create their own technology contribution.
