My Science Diary (Paperback)
Why should you buy this book? The world is in dire need of not just working scientists, but a population that is scientifically literate. Our story as humans is woven into the story of science; it is the story of how we left the cave to explore the stars. This endeavor was accomplished not by a handful of experts, but by thousands of curious individuals all contributing their observations and tested ideas.
The story of science is full of examples of ordinary children who, because of a single moment of inspiration, went on to pursue science. These ordinary children grew up to make discoveries that had an impact on all of humanity. Simple questions like "why does electricity affect a compass?" and "What is this mold doing in my petri dish?" led to some of the greatest advances in human civilization.
With every book sold, we understand the next Newton, Einstein, Faraday, or Curie may be holding it right now. By exciting, educating, and inspiring kids, we look to spread scientific literacy so that future generations will be ready when the next "mold in my petri dish" opportunity rears its head.
My Science Diary is designed to hone that natural, often insane, curiosity all kids have. To take playtime and turn it into an opportunity to build critical thinking skills and scientific literacy.
