Scientists at Work Series (NEW!)


Being a scientist is a fascinating job. After all, scientists are the people who discover new planets circling distant stars, research human origins, and predict earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Each title in this essential series introduces young readers to a scientific field and explains what the people who work in that field actually do. It covers the challenges scientists hope to solve, the tools they use, and the methods they use. The major branches of each field are introduced, and key scientific concepts for understanding it are explained in a clear and age-appropriate manner.
