Join Lucy on her Engineering Adventures!

These rhyming picture books introduce children to building and HVAC engineering through the various outings of a curious young girl, Lucy. Help her find unique solutions to STEM problems and see if you’d like to be an engineer too!

This series was developed by ASHRAE’s Student Activities Committee as part of their goal to promote and encourage engineering and HVAC&R careers.
