Scientists in the Field

All > Science / Nature > SUPPLEMENTAL SCIENCE RESOURCES > Science Topical Informational / Textual (Series) > Scientists in the Field
Subtitled "Where Science Meets Adventure," this unique series explores a science-related topic through the work of one particular scientist who conducts research in that particular field. In Hidden Worlds (my personal favorite), readers learn about microscopy and the microscopic world by spending some time with microscopist Dennis Kunkel. Chapters examine the topics that Dennis has studied, incorporating dazzling images captured from compound and electron microscopes such as butterfly wing scales, mold stalks, grains of pollen, cells, bacteria, mosquitoes and more. In Mysterious Universe, readers travel to the Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii to observe a group of scientists who study black holes and dark energy. Kids who love frogs will be intrigued by Frog Scientist, which follows research scientist Tyrone Hayes, who studies the effects of pesticides on frog populations. While I love how the books offer readers a glimpse into the lives and work of real, living scientists, I also think that it helps bring sometimes boring or bland science topics to life. Even older students will enjoy the full-color photos and the details of the scientists' research as they consider the possibilities for their own future in science! Most books are between 60-80 pgs, pb. Jess
