Product description

Meet the people who shook the world with science! Being a brilliant scientist doesn’t have to be about sitting in a lab all day. The scientists in this series not only did amazing work; they led pretty amazing lives as well. Like Marie Curie. She discovered two radioactive elements; helped invent the X-ray machine; and used radiation to cure cancer. She even worked as a medic on the First World War frontline. She also became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize (she won two in the end), before dying of radiation poisoning. Science, boring? NOT!

  • A fascinating biography of a major scientific figure
  • Full of quotes, pictures, maps, timelines and weblinks
  • A highly readable blend of scientific facts and life story
  • Perfect for science projects and for general interest reading

“A superb series… Excellent both for a library and for children and teachers to read as part of a science course.” TES
