From Velcro, Corn Flakes and stretch nylon to the chance observation that sent a thrilled Archimedes running naked through the streets shouting "Eureka!", this volume contains a number of historical anecdotes designed to bring science to life. To increase the child's involvement with this aspect of science, simple experiments accompany each story - helping children experience the same excitement that famous discoverers encountered. Covering a broad range of topics including chemistry, physics, astronomy, biology and archaeology, this book is aimed at 8-12 year olds.
