Description
The one hundred years of the 20th century saw an incredible range of discovery and invention in all fields of science. Looking back, technological advances seem to have unfolded at a dizzying rate...

As today's 21st century children -- and their siblings still to come -- learn to understand their world, scientific literacy will be an essential tool. POPULAR SCIENCE: SCIENCE YEAR BY YEAR is the perfect book to help kids realize that the scientific promise of tomorrow is based largely on the achievements of yesterday.

Prepared in collaboration with Popular Science magazine -- the preeminent publication which has brought science to its readers for over a century -- POPULAR SCIENCE: SCIENCE YEAR BY YEAR is a broad yet complete overview of scientific and technological developments of the past century. More than twenty-five branches of science -- from archaeology to oceanography to zoology -- are represented in a heavily illustrated year-by-year format that is great for browsing. The text is enriched with capsule biographies of scientific pioneers and "Science News" features. Every year includes a "Glance at the Past" item, highlighting the accomplishments that paved the way for scientific progress. Twenty special spreads pause to take more in-depth looks at essential concepts like the development of radio and the growth of the environmental movement. There's room for fun, too, with news of the science that brought us bubble gum!

The wealth of information presented here can be accessed by consulting the extensive index, which makes it possible to trace achievements in various sciences across the span of the 20th century. But many readers will no doubt be unable to resist beginning theirquest for knowledge by looking first at what was discovered in the year that they were born.

POPULAR SCIENCE: SCIENCE YEAR BY YEAR gathers a century's worth of scientific riches between its covers, creating a book curious
