Galya and Natasha's Rocky Adventure Storybook
Galya and Natasha may be identical twins, but nearly everything about them is different. Natasha loves being outside and looking for stones to use in her jewelry making. Galya would rather be inside curled up with a good book.
The summer plans of both girls are turned upside down when their mother’s work as an archaeologist brings them to Lake Onego, several hours away from their home in St. Petersburg, Russia. When they discover a replica of an ancient carving—a petroglyph similar to those their mother studies—their interests begin to merge. With the help of Mila, a family friend and materials engineer, they explore different ways to create their own replicas. The girls realize there is a lot to learn about the engineering design process. . . and about each other.
Readers are encouraged to investigate the properties of rocks and create their own petroglyph. With some creativity and knowledge of the engineering design process, everyone can engineer!
