101 Things Everyone Should Know about Science
Why do you see lightning before you hear thunder? What keeps the planets orbiting around the sun? Why do we put salt on roads when they are icy? What metal is a liquid at room temperature? And the burning question: Why do so many scientists wear white lab coats?
Science affects everything -- yet so many of us wish we understood it better. Using an accessible question-and-answer approach, 101 Things Everyone Should Know About Science expands a reader's knowledge-whether they are 8 or 108. Key concepts in biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, and general science are explored and demystified by an award-winning science writer and a seasoned educational trainer in consultation with a team of scientists.
Endorsed by science organizations and educators, this easy-to-tackle book is a powerful tool to assess and increase science literacy. Perfect for kids, parents, grown-ups, and anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of how science impacts everyday life. 101 Things Everyone Should Know About Science is the first in Platypus Media's new "101 Things Everyone Should Know" series.
