Time to go time-travelling!
Harriet and Milton are off travelling on six different adventures.
The first takes us back to prehistorical times to see when humans started asking questions that led to science and so much else.
The second takes us to visit the first scientists in Ancient Greece. Want to know more about Socrates, Aristotle and Plato? Let Harriet and Milton introduce you to them!
The Curious Team
I had the great pleasure of working on these books with two helpers. Andrew Briggs is a professor at Oxford University looking at the very small things (nano materials). Roger Wager is an artist who paints inspiring pictures, including angels and power stations! As curiosity is such a big subject, we put our heads together to come up with a history of it in six books.
The illustrations in this series were done by Brett Hudson. Our thanks go to him for making such a good job of them!
“The brilliant and entertaining illustrations in this series enliven a clear and enjoyable text that should stimulate serious thought about the world and our place in it.”
Lord Rees, Astronomer Royal
Science has the best stories
Where is human curiosity taking us? You can find out some of the directions we are going in if you visit my YouTube channel ‘Science has the best stories’. I’ll be posting interviews with top researchers and artists to find out what tales they have to tell. Here’s a little introduction to what’s in store.
And check out the featured videos below. Find out how many curious things, including how mathematics gives an insight to the brain; what is going on in the curious quantum world; and how poets are inspired by scientific ideas. Don’t miss Professor Ard Louis who has a fascinating story to tell about lego and chimpanzees.
