Scientist Academy

Written by Steve Martin

Illustrated by Essi Kimpimaki

Key Stage 3 Science

LoveReading View on Scientist Academy

This cleverly designed, attractive book will catch the imagination of all children, even those who wrongly believe that they don’t have what it takes to be a scientist. It explains that the key attribute for scientists is curiosity and then stimulates that in young readers by giving them a variety of fun, practical exercises and experiments to do. There are sticker rewards for each completed task and the experiments themselves will give children a real sense of satisfaction and achievement.  A fun, inspiring way to get children thinking about how our world works and a great book to provoke understanding of the different types of scientific activity. ~ Andrea Reece
