Scientists and Their Mind-blowing Experiments

'........another thing about dead famous scientists is that most of them didn't call themselves that - the word 'scientist' was only invented in 1833. What we think of as science - laboratories full of large-brained people, mathematics that makes your brain explode, gigantic machines that go 'Hmmm' only really got going in the 19th Century..... Before that, science was only done by a few people with enquiring minds and time on their hands.. Most of the dead famous scientists in this book were like that..........'

Bought this to help my daughter (age 11) with her Chemistry homework. She had to write an essay on Scientists and what it means to be a scientist.
This range of books is brilliant for children because it is written in such a fun way, that they learn without realising it, and the homework was completed without a murmur!

My daughter's engish teacher said she should read biopgraphies not just fiction. So as she is more interested in science than english i got her this. Reliable, factual and entertaining, as are all the 'horrible' series books
