Author: Brian Clegg

Science is rightly a fundamental part of primary school education, but that doesn't make it easy to teach
- especially for teachers without a science background. This straight talking book from an experienced
science writer and communicator looks at how to make the most of it and give primary school children a
good grounding in the topic. Getting Science sets out to engage the sense of wonder. The science in this
book is not for the children, but for the adults who have to explain it. Starting with a whirlwind tour of the
great milestones of modern science, Getting Science goes on to take each of the main curriculum topics
and give it a new twist. It provides the information needed to understand the key topics better and be able
to put them across with enthusiasm and energy.This book will help teachers to get children excited by
science, to understand science rather than just answer questions. Getting Science makes science fun,
approachable and comprehensible to those who just don't get it.
