The Amazing Science Fair Project (Project Kids Adventures) (Volume 3) Paperback – May 3, 2015
|New from||Used from|
"Such an amazing read! The kids are funny, smart, organized, yet they still act like kids. This should be a recommended reading in school because it inspires the young readers to value good grades and to exert true effort in their studies." - Jannell Cajote, Phillipines
"This is a captivating children's story which presents how to plan and execute a project in order to achieve success using basic project management concepts. I would recommend it to anyone, both children and adults, who are interested in learning about project management as a useful life skill." - Agnieszka Krogulec, PMI Poland Chapter
"THIS BOOK IS GREAT for young people (by age or at heart), and is a fresh story with plenty of easy-to-understand hints about project management. If you are new to projects, you will learn a lot following Amanda and their friends while also having a lot of fun! If you are already in the world of projects, you will learn something new and see what you do as a Project Manager from a very different perspective." - Giorgio Bensa, PMP - Membership Director, PMI Northern Italy Chapter - PMI Volunteer of the year (2012) for creating the "Project in Bloom" contest.
About the Author
Gary M. Nelson (Gazza) is passionate about sharing knowledge and making Project Management concepts more accessible, particularly to new and aspiring Project Managers (of all ages). Said another way, he likes to tell stories to help convey complex concepts in a way that helps the concepts "stick". Who says learning shouldn't be fun?
Born in Calgary, Alberta (Canada), Gary moved west to B.C. at the very early age of 2, where he spent most of his formative years - aside from a 6 year stint where he learned to appreciate living in a very small town of 800 people. He then attended high school in Surrey, B.C. and went on to graduate from Simon Fraser University (BC, Canada) in 1989 with a major in Computing science and a minor in English - an odd but useful mix (a techie who can write clearly)!
Gary was tricked into becoming a Project Manager by his first manager, and has never looked back. His international experience includes projects in New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the US and Canada, working on projects in the Telecom, Student Information Systems, Local Government and Healthcare sectors.
Having wanted to write books since high school, it took many long years of successful procrastination until he finally felt he had something useful to write about, and wrote his first book of stories in 2012...on Project Management, of all things. Next, presented with the terrifying challenge of writing for children, he enlisted his youngest sons to be the first victims (reviewers and editors) and the Project Kids series of books were born. Several years on, he is amazed to see the books being translated into multiple languages, and reaching into schools and homes around the world.
Gary currently lives in New Zealand with his wife, three sons and two cats, and is loving every bit of it.
