JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown High School library recently received a donation of STEM-related books from Shults Subaru-Nissan through their “Subaru Loves Learning” initiative.

The four titles donated include: “Built” by Roma Agrawal, “Spying on Whales” by Nick Pyenson, “Rocket Men” by Robert Kurson, and “Chasing New Horizons: Inside the Epic First Mission to Pluto” by Alan Stern and David Grinspoon.

The initiative aims to donate over tens of thousands of award-winning science books to schools across the country.

“This was a very generous donation and they will make a great addition to our collection helping our students as they face an increasingly technological world,” said JHS Library Media Specialist, Curtis Carr. “We thank Shults Subaru-Nissan for helping our kids.”

Students in Barbi Price’s English and Public Speaking classes had a chance to choose donated books that interested them. JHS senior, Abby Beach chose “Rocket Men”.

“I want to be a pilot and be inspired by the heroic flights of the astronauts and pilots who came before me,” said Beach.

According to Subaru, over 50% of the fastest growing jobs in the U.S. are in the fields of science and only 26% of high school students are ready for college level science.

With the inclusion of outstanding K-12 science trade books in the classroom, teachers can help bridge the gap.

Subaru retailers are donating a diverse array of award-winning science books to schools with the goal of engaging K- 12 students.
