Synopsis

The Age of the Atom: 1900-1946 by Charlie Samuels

A must for Key Stage 3 students aged 11 and up this engaging book uses timelines to describe scientific and technological advances from 1900 to 1946. In the first half of the 20th century, science changed the lives of everyone. Scientists explored the nature of atoms and discovered the immense power they contained. Radio and television transformed the way people communicated, and aeroplanes and cars made the world seem smaller. Each volume in the five-book series examines the story of scientific discovery in a series of timelines and each chapter examines either a particular aspect of science, or the life and work of an important scientist of the time. Parallels with other fields, such as astronomy and mathematics are highlighted so that readers can gain a rounded understanding of how scientists build on what has gone before and how science flourished in different parts of the world, or in different disciplines at the same time.
