Product Overview

From the music that thumps through a listener''s headphones to the strains of an orchestra tuning up for a performance, science plays a vital role in how we hear and create music.

Each book in the set provides historical background and "how things work" explanations that cover earth science, biology, chemistry, and/or physics topics. To build on these ideas and make scientific concepts clearer, each book also features at least 25 hands-on, illustrated experiments that readers can do using simple materials found at home or school.
