London Mums have four copies of a stunning new book by DK to give away. The book is Inventions – A Children’s Encyclopedia. This visual guide explores and explains the greatest inventions, ideas, and discoveries throughout the ages, and introduces the inventors behind them. Inventions – A Children’s Encyclopedia charts the growth of human imagination and creation, with details on all the “Eureka” moments from 3,000,000 BCE to the present day.
From the discovery of fire and creation of stone tools to the wheel and paper, discover the first inventions from over 6,000 years ago that we still use today. These are the ideas that helped shape societies, forming mighty civilisations and empires such as those in ancient Greece, Rome, and China. Profile pages delve into the lives of pivotal inventors and prolific periods of discovery, with eye-catching photography and gallery spreads which show the evolution of various creations over time.
Learn about James Watt’s steam engine during the Industrial Revolution, the Wright brothers’ flying machines, Thomas Edison’s light bulb, and so much more. Track the progress of more than 700 important inventions which created era-defining moments throughout history. Read about the more recent, life-changing advances made during the Digital Revolution, such as the first website developed by Tim Berners-Lee, and the growth of robotics and artificial intelligence in industry, transport, space, and at home.
An ideal resource for teachers, parents, and children for Key Stages 2 and 3, this visual guide is perfect for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) learning. Inventions – A Children’s Encyclopedia reveals the stories behind both crucial and quirky contraptions; products of the world’s most brilliant minds to inspire budding inventors.
