Description

As a key subject for children in an ever more sophisticated world, the grasp of science and the basic principles behind it are explored in "The Kingfisher Science Encyclopedia". Arranged thematically, the text seeks not just to provide factual information, but help the reader to enquire and collect and use evidence in the exploration of new topics. Each subject area is provided with important dates and events, together with biographies of the outstanding scientists in that field.show more
