From the Back Cover:

Intrigue, drama, mystery, risk, tragedy, triumph - you'll find it all here in these stories of scientists, their work, and their discoveries. This collection of 50 vignettes focuses on the characters, events, and moments of genius that comprise the story of science. Ideal for both read-alouds and reading assignments, tales such as "Funny Rubber", the story of how Silly Putty was invented, and "Circles of the Sun", the story of Nicolaus Copernicus and astronomy in 1499, illustrate scientific principles and the evolution of science through history - and they take just minutes to read! Activities and discussion questions supplement the stories and focus student attention on the topic, perspective, and period of the story. They also correlate the stories with elements of the science curriculum. With lists of references for further reading and cross-indexing by year of occurrence and scientific discipline, this book is not only a lively collection of stories, it is also a practical tool for teaching science.

About the Author:

KENDALL HAVEN is a nationally recognized master storyteller and the author of numerous books, including Marvels of Math, Write Right!, and Close Encounters with Deadly Dangers. A former research scientist, he is based in Fulton, California.
