A fun, attention-grabbing and interactive introduction to the science of materials.

Finding out about our material world has never been so engaging. This book is full of exciting experiments, fun puzzles, quirky humour and science facts to make you say WOW … it’s science with a BOOM! For children progressing through Book Bands, it is suitable for reading at band 12: Brown.

Why not look out for the other BOOM SCIENCE titles? This fun series for children aged 6+ explores key science topics including Electricity, Forces, Human Body, Light, Materials, Plants, Seasons and Sound.


A great book for introducing the topic of materials to children; the cover is engaging and makes the topic look interesting ... Would make a good addition to a school library, particularly as there is currently a greater focus on engaging pupils in STEM subjects.
