Description

The "Eyewitness Science" series encourages children to observe and question the world around them in an interesting, accessible way. In recognition of this, "Eyewitness Science: Evolution" shared the 1994 Rhone-Poulenc Science Book Prize. This book on technology explores the ways in which technology has transformed everyday life and the scientific principles and innovations that lie behind it. The emphasis is on finished products that readers can relate to. The series supplements all aspects of science within Key Stages 2, 3, and 4 of the National Curriculum.show more

Review Text

The latest additions to the acclaimed Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Science series follow the now familiar format of clear text accompanied by largely photographic illustrations of people and things of relevance to the subject. Although they are ostensibly intended for 'young readers' (National Curriculum Key Stages two, three and four), they provide excellent introductions to their subjects for anyone interested in science - especially the history of science.
