The Curious Science Quest: Modern Flights

Join Harriet, Darwin’s pet tortoise, and Milton, Schrodinger’s indecisive cat on a time-travelling quest of discovery, unravelling scientific exploration and religious beliefs and how they fit together.

Throughout the centuries humans have been looking for answers to BIG questions – how did the universe start? Is there a God behind it? Has science explained away the need for a God, or can faith enhance scientific discovery?

Take to the skies in this adventure and zoom off into space, exploring the scientific discoveries of the technological age. Step into Harriet and Milton’s time machine, bring some snacks, and enjoy this curious quest of discovery.

Written by Julia Golding (winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2006, and the Nestle Smarties Book Prize 2006) with Andrew Briggs (Professor of Nanomaterials in the Department of Materials at the University of Oxford) and Roger Wagner (artist and author), inspired by their book: The Penultimate Curiosity.

Also available as a kindle e-book.
