February 15th is Galileo’s birthday, so I decided to search out all of the kids’ books and fun resources to aid me in teaching our son about the man that designed the first pendulum clock. Galileo improved the telescope and thus discovered sunspots, tracked the phases of Venus, and puzzled over the rings of Saturn. He also went on to discover the four massive moons of Jupiter! This is definitely a scientist our son wanted to know more about.
Lets talk kids who love science for a moment. I don’t know about you, but our kids love anything science related! We’re talking chemistry, engineering, geology, robots, STEM and everything in-between. They will spend hours building, tinkering, and completely absorbed in any experiment. So, if you’re like me and frantically searching for science related gifts, then search no more. Check out these fantastic holiday gift ideas for your science loving kids!
Marie Curie is considered one of the greatest female scientists of all time. With her birthday coming up on November 7th, and our sons love of all things science, I felt a post dedicated to kids books about Marie Curie, and to inspiring little scientist everywhere was needed. I mean, it’s not every day that someone wins the Nobel prize, or that someone wins the Nobel prize twice and in two different fields, or that your discovery helps usher in the atomic age!
