What did the judges think?
Judge Jo Marchant, science writer, said: “Packed with projects, puzzles and experiments related to the different jobs that scientists do, from archaeologist to zoologist. Whereas some books treat science as a collection of facts, with Scientist Academy it’s a real-life adventure. My kids couldn’t wait to get started.”
