In a much smaller but more famous project, Federal Project Number One, the WPA employed musicians, artists, writers, actors and directors in large arts, drama, media, and literacy projects. One of the writing projects of the WPA was the production of dozens of science books for elementary school children, sponsored by the Pennsylvania department of Public Instruction. The covered a vast array of subjects from industry to technology, science and nature.
