Let's Race!: Sprinting into the Science of Light Speed with Special Relativity

    Equip the next generation of scientists with a brand new series from Chris Ferrie, the #1 science author for kids!  

    Time moves quickly when you're having fun! So why does it go so slowly when you're not? Red Kangaroo wants to know and Dr. Chris has the answers―it's all a matter of special relativity!

    Chris Ferrie offers a kid-friendly introduction to special relativity and the speed of light in this installment of his new Everyday Science Academy series. With real-world and practical examples, young readers will have a firm grasp of scientific and mathematical concepts to help answer many of their "why" questions.

    Perfect for elementary-aged children and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards.

    Backmatter includes a glossary, comprehension questions aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy, and experiments kids can easily do at school or at home!
