The Science Timeline Wallbook

In stock

The real world is far more amazing than anything you can make up! But if you don't believe us, perhaps this Wallbook will convince you. On the six-foot-long timeline, using more than a thousand pictures and captions, we've told the extraordinary story of science from prehistoric times to the present day. Dates are tracked by a beam of bright white light that eventually collides with a prism containing the picture of Isaac Newton. As the dates slide down to the bottom of the timeline, each colored stream represents a different branch of science and engineering, rising up from abstract math at the bottom, to the infinity of space at the top.

Then there's the fun-to-read Wallbook Chronicle, with newspaper-style reports on a range of key moments explaining the history of science, just as if each one happened yesterday. Towards the end, our "letters pages" highlight how key discoveries can be seen from different points of view. Ages 6 and up.
