Have you ever wondered what you had in common with the stars above? This August you can find out what we have in common with fizzy soda, cars, and star systems. Chemistry makes up all matter, from the elements on the periodic table to the molecues that form the galaxy. Molecules, particles, elements, and chemical reactions make up everyday life here and beyond. We'll also take a look at the chemists who discovered and made our modern world possible.
by Adrian Dingle
What do cars, stars, skyscrapers, and ice cream all have in common? They're all made from the same 92 ingredients...and so are we. And so is everything in the entire universe! How to Make a Universe with 92 Ingredients presents a unique and imaginative way for young readers to connect chemistry and science with their daily lives. By using dozens of familiar objects, author Adrian Dingle has built a platform from which to teach kids that trees, cell phones, and the Sun are all made of a handful of chemical elements found on the periodic table.
