About this deal

Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Puffin has produced an excellent non-fiction volume which young people will not be able to put down. Featuring chapters about space colonies, time travel, super-intelligent machines, invisibility, superhumans, nanotechnology, cloning, nuclear fusion and much more, this brilliant book is seriously inspiring – and a great source for parents and teachers of curious kids.

Unsurprisingly, in a book about colour, every spread is full of glorious images that celebrate each colour in turn. Dr Sheila Kanani MBE is a British astronomer and is the Education, Outreach and Diversity Officer at the Royal Astronomical Society and is dedicated to improving the representation of girls and women in physics.For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. Career Case Study: Dr Sheila Kanani is an inspiring interview with the author which many students would find fascinating.

For example, at Indian weddings some brides wear red which symbolises love, commitment and strength and that in the early 1900s, purple was one of the colours representing Women’s Suffrage which stood for freedom and dignity. She continues to identify new ways to make astronomy and physics accessible to underrepresented communities. An experienced educator, her explanations are clear and inspiring, setting readers up for what is to come. As well as being a captivating read, it is the design, layout and illustrations that will get children picking up the book and delving in.

We’ll talk about light (the most important thing) and waves (not the kind you see at the beach – though you will learn why the sea looks blue! Ross Welford introduces Time Travelling with a Tortoise, the sequel to Time Travelling with a Hamster, and a whole new time travel adventure! Interestingly, too, the primary colours of light that humans can see are red, blue and green – and when you mix green and red light they make yellow! We would like to thank the following organisations for their support of Ada Lovelace Day and women in STEM.

Dancing through the colours of the rainbow (and beyond, through black, white, fluorescence, infrared and ultraviolet), each section explains how we see that particular colour and explores nature linked to it, including how some animals can see in the dark. Of course, the book also answers its own title and you will find out if you can actually see rainbows in Space. We use Google Analytics to see what pages are most visited, and where in the world visitors are visiting from. Mae’r llyfr ffeithiol hwn wedi’i ddarlunio’n hyfryd mewn lliw llawn drwyddo draw, ac mae’n hynod gyfeillgar a deniadol.Her favourite 'work' interests are teaching GCSE Astronomy and giving public talks to audiences of all ages and sizes, while representing her place of work, the Royal Astronomical Society, which she adores.

Beautifully illustrated in full colour, this is a visual feast of a book which uses a rainbow to guide you through a universe of amazing scientific facts comparable to Bill Bryson's A Really Short History of Nearly Everything.One final fascinating fact for you from a book that is overflowing with them: overripe bananas glow indigo under ultraviolet light so maybe you should get one to check the state of your bananas? The inclusion of a detailed glossary in the final chapter is helpful for those readers needing clarification of terms used. I would recommend this book as part of a library, or in the book corner, for children to pick up and become engrossed in. Lavishly illustrated, this book shows us there's so much to find out about our colourful world and how we see it. Our mission is to inspire children to feel they can be and do anything, and to create readers for life.
