Winner of The Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2015 Researcher, doctor, writer and broadcaster, Robert Winston has won the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize for a third time with Utterly Amazing Science. The book is jam packed with colourful illustrations, engaging text and amazing facts and stories, capturing young imaginations and helping readers get to grips with the various subjects within science.
Professor John Burland FRS, Chair of the adult judging panel said: “I am delighted to hear our young judges have chosen Utterly Amazing Science as this year’s winner of the Royal Society Young People’s Prize - it was my personal favourite too. All of the books on this year’s shortlist have been written by authors that are very obviously passionate about inspiring young people about the wonders of science. Utterly Amazing Science brings to life topics that our young people will be learning about in schools in a colourful and fun way. The best way to learn about the scientific laws that govern our universe is to get out there and experiment. Robert Winston’s book certainly delivers on this front with lots of simple and effective activities to try at home or in the classroom. I hope that it inspires the next generation of scientists, doctors, engineers and perhaps even science teachers.”
