The Questioneers: Read. Question. Think. PLAY!

The Questioneers book series, written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts, celebrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, perseverance, and passion. Like the characters, Iggy Peck, Rosie Revere, Ada Twist, Aaron Slater, and Sofia Valdez, every budding architect, engineer, scientist, artist, and leader, will find inspiration to solve everyday mysteries and to think more critically about their world. Most importantly, they will learn that despite inevitable challenges, they should always continue to “Read. Question. Think.” — and never give up on their dreams.

 

Bring these beloved characters and their unique learning experiences to life at your institution with our new traveling exhibition — The Questioneers: Read. Question. Think. PLAY!

Step Into the World of The Questioneers

Be A Questioneer!

Questions are posed, challenges identified, and problem-solving begins! Miss Lila Greer’s classroom is the gathering place and launching point for collaboration, curiosity, and creativity.

 

Like Ada Twist

Be A Scientist

Sort fiction from fact, investigate cause and effect, and why a clock goes “tick tock” at hands-on investigation stations. Ask why? how? what? when? and then why? again and again from Ada’s special thinking chair.

 

Like Rosie Revere

Be An Engineer

Try and try again! Engineer rockets, test your flying (or falling) contraptions, and pilot a life-size Heli-o-cheese-copter! “Brilliant flops” lead to continued experimentation, inspiring creativity and perseverance.

Like Iggy Peck

Be An Architect

Build whimsical bridges, design buildings, and figure out how to construct a gigantic version of that famous pancake arch. Art, math, and science come together as young architects discover the balance between form and function.

Like Sofia Valdez

Be A Leader

Explore how one person’s bravery can change the world, and declare to others how you intend to make a difference in your community. Advocate, imagine, and plan together to transform Mount Trashmore into Citizen’s Park.

Like Aaron Slater

Be An Artist

Aaron’s art leads the way and it helps him discover what he wants to say. His story about the power of art and finding your voice even when you’re out of step with your peers is a reminder that we each have our own superpowers and struggles. And that’s what makes us so unique and important to the world.
