dc.description.abstract In order to combine my passion for creativity, my love for children, and my engineering background, I decided to create a very personalized thesis project. Princess Catie Goes to College is a children’s book about a young girl whose older sister leaves for college. I chose to write about this conflict because it was a conflict that I was forced to deal with as a child. Instead of merely helping a child deal with conflict, the purpose of this story is also to inspire and educate young girls to learn and become excited about the thrilling possibilities that math, science, and engineering hold for the future. The process of writing a children’s book is a very complicated and difficult path but is well worth the effort. This document contains a brief history of children’s literature, a synopsis of why I chose to write about math and science, and my motivation for the design of the story and characters. en
