Profiles of more than two dozen famous historical figures explain how their inventions are used in the modern world and provide insight into the experimental nature of the Aegean people. Fifteen activities allow children to re-create some of the scientific discoveries while learning how to use scientific reasoning, develop theses, and find supporting evidence.
