Which of the following were discovered or invented by kids?
b) Pterodactyl fossils
Answer: All of the above! These important contributions to science and many others were the result of the efforts of curious and smart kids who often started with only a simple idea or sketch. This fascinating book tells the stories of nine such kids, all of who made lasting impacts in science. Included are some well-known innovators, such as Louis Braille and physicist Robert Goddard, as well as lesser-known people like Philo Farnsworth, the teen inventor of television, and Mary Anning, the great paleontologist credited with finding dozens of spectacular fossils from the Jurassic period as a young girl. Each chapter is a testament to what young people can achieve through curiosity, imagination and persistence.
