Synopsis

Scientists by Philip Steele, Camilla De la Bedoyere

Epic: Scientists focuses on some of history's most remarkable scientists, from Archimedes, Alhazen and Galileo, to Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein and Marie Curie. The book gives a brief biography of each scientist - when and where they lived, and how they came to embark upon their illustrious careers. Their work and discoveries, and the impact these had on science and the scientific community, are also explained. Infographic elements on each spread present information in a simple and highly visual way. Clear, concise text and a bright, appealing design make the book the perfect resource for project work on scientists and the history of science, or simply a great leisure read, for children aged 9 and above. For more epic events, try reading the other titles in the Epic series: Battles, Empires, Animal Migrations and Explorers.
