Science & technology: general interest (Children's

Discover the big ideas in medicine that have transformed the world around us.

The Greatest Ideas in Medicine explores the extraordinary ideas that have changed people's lives - from the first vaccines, through the development of IVF, to ground-breaking cancer therapies and 'intelligent' artificial limbs.

From Apollo 11's historic flight to the wonders of the world wide web, the world has changed beyond recognition in the past hundred years. Think Big takes a close-up look at the amazing ideas that have transformed the way we all live.

Each spread explores a big idea in greater depth, explaining how it came to be and what evolved from it and assessing its impact on the world today. 'Genius' panels highlight the great thinkers behind the ideas, from scientists to inventors, environmentalists and engineers.

Each book includes carefully selected activities designed to inspire readers aged 9 and older and encourage them to nurture their own 'big thinking' and entrepreneurial spirit.
