Investigate the world of science by exploring its extremes
When the world of science is viewed at its extremes it is easier to study and understand and it is also much more awesome!
In Powerful Forces find out what it takes to move at extreme speeds, what g-force does to the human body and some truly impressive land, sea and air speed records. Uncover how shape of an object affects push and pull forces, such as thrust and drag, and how forces are used every day in all kinds of ways. And find out about one of the most powerful forces of all - gravity.
This series looks at extreme qualities and experiences, and how things have evolved and adapted to reach their extreme state and how we can identify scientific information from this. Presented in a highly graphic and accessible way, Extreme Science will appeal to visual learners and reluctant readers. Aimed at children aged 9 and up.
Extreme Science is a series of six books:
Awesome Matter and Materials
Spectacular Light and Sound
Incredible Living Things
