Without electricity, transportation and communication would move at a much slower pace. Electricity was discovered by many great inventors from around the world. Imagine how excited people must have been with each new electricity discovery, including light bulbs, motors, batteries, air conditioning, telephones, television, computers, and more! Learn the history behind the people who researched the truth about this energy source and developed ways to harness it. And dream and plan about how you could help create resources for renewable electricity as a future scientist.
Students in upper-elementary grades will enjoy learning about various important science topics in the reader-friendly format of the STEM Stories series. Teachers will find the series perfect as a resource for students doing reports and projects or simply as a reference material in planning science lessons. In this book on electricity, the layout and design of the book make the text inviting. Each chapter is only two pages long, with pictures, infographics, diagrams, fun facts, and highlighted vocabulary. A timeline, glossary, index, and online resources make this book helpful for students searching for specific information or for budding scientists interested in learning more.
