Science in the pink lab
Introducing Violet Ray, the first child created for Science! She can create anything including her Pink Lab and Lab Lounge Solar Dome. Violet Ray has created the perfect pad for creating (and sometimes messing up) experiments.
SECRET SCIENCE IN VIOLET RAY’S WORLD
From her solar-powered dragonfly fetchers to her hydroponic beet garden with water catchment, Violet Ray believes in a fun, scientific approach to resources. Behind every fuzzy detail is a scientific purpose and a way to learn to live lightly AND playfully.
THE STORY OF CAT ION & ANN ION
Violet Ray builds her best robot Lab Cat yet, until she turns it on. Cat Ion is not positive like his name. Violet Ray learns some bonding basics when she invents a new Artificial Intelligence: Ann Ion.
CAT ION’S SCRATCH ‘N’ SNIFF SCIENCE
Follow Cat Ion through his smelliest experiments. He doesn’t have a sense of smell, but YOU do! Includes recipes to make on your own.
VIOLET RAY IN THE 4TH DIMENSION
In the 4th Dimension, everything in the 3rd Dimension is revealed. With the Universe laid bare, Violet Ray can explore anywhere, learning the secrets of the ocean or the new frontiers in space.

In the first book of this series, Violet Ray spills a glass of heavy water and discovers the gateway to the 4th Dimension, right in her Pink Lab!
CHOOSE YOUR OWN REALITY!
Like “Choose Your Own Adventure,” except the story has different scientific laws changed. Readers will find very unexpected worlds when even the smallest detail is changed.
ULTRAVIOLET RAY ADVENTURES
Violet Ray builds a Crystal Charger Superconductor Transformer (CCST) and transforms into UltraViolet Ray.
As UltraViolet Ray, she can pass through the electromagnetic spectrum, transcending time. In this state, she meets with women scientists when they were little girls.
FLYING FISSION MISSION
Violet Ray meets scientists Lise Meitner and Ida Tacke Noddack as little girls. Ida proposed fission and Lise proved it in the lab. They take Violet Ray on a different route to the 4th Dimension. Becoming as small as atomic nuclei, Ida and Lise take Violet Ray on an amazing Flying Fission Mission through the crazy quantum world.
DYNAMO DNA DYAD
UltraViolet Ray meets little Rosalind Franklin, who shows how she discovered that the DNA molecule is a double helix. Then Rosalind unveils her creation, a Dynamo DNA Dyad slide. But the double ride gets wild when UltraViolet Ray finds out how small changes can make big mutations!
MARIE CURIE’S COURAGE
UltraViolet Ray meets Marie Curie who graduated at the top of her class at 15 but was still not allowed to enroll in a university. Marie shares how she went to “Floating University,” an illegal night school with students teaching each other what they knew. Marie’s persistence to learn eventually earned her the first doctorate awarded to a woman and an unprecedented two Nobel Prizes. Marie’s daughter Iréne continued her mother’s research and received one as well.
