We celebrated Valentine's Day in a very special way!
At PMI Educational Foundation, we’re celebrating with the release of The Valentine's Day Project Disaster, our fourth installment in a series of Project Management fiction books for preteens. Using age-appropriate language and examples, this fun and engaging story continues to follow “Project Kids,” chronicling their efforts—and struggles—to organize a Valentine's Day dance.
As the story unfolds, Project Kids achieve new feats and build relationships. Every step of the way they learn more and more project management principles. Students learn how to put these skills into practice in real life situations.
Author and former PMI New Zealand Chapter leader, Gary Nelson, PMP, believes this is the very best way to help these complex concepts “stick.” He continues, “Whether you’re a kid or adult, having the diligence to think about a task as a project is a huge help...a little solid planning goes a long way!”
Gary developed his passion for teaching Project Management through working with his own children. In fact, they interacted with Gary during the book’s development and made suggestions all the way through his writing process!
The Valentine's Day Project Disaster is available here. Download your copy at no-cost and share it with your students or kids. And if you haven’t downloaded the other books in this series—including The Ultimate Tree House Project, The Scariest Haunted House Project Ever, and The Amazing Science Fair Project—be sure to take advantage of these helpful, no-cost resources!
Thank you for believing in project management and the difference it can make. Because of friends and donors like you, PMIEF develops unique, effective resources like this series just for kids, ages 10-12. We’re preparing the next generation of project managers together!
