Synopsis

The Digital Age 1947-Present Day 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 1947 to the present day. The Digital Age investigates recent scientific developments, including major scientific advancements of the understanding of human genetics and the invention of the Internet. 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.
