Genius! : The Most Astonishing Inventions of all Time
Here is a lively and educational children’s book about the great (and sometimes surprising) inventions that created our 21st-century world, and the brilliant, and often brave, inventors who dared to think the unthinkable and do the impossible. From Archimedes’ machine for carrying water up hill, to Edison’s electric light bulb; from the Wright brothers’ first powered flight to the Saturn V space rocket; from Gutenberg’s printing press to Tim Berners-Lee’s creation of the worldwide web – each gripping story of invention, struggle and perseverance is told in fascinating detail. The book includes a selection of simple how-to activities to inspire the budding scientist. Genius! will appeal to children around the age of 9+ with an interest in technology, science and history.
