From the creators of the award-winning World in Infographics series, Science in Infographics: Materials uses numbers to explain the topic of materials.

Welcome to the world of infographics! This exciting form of data visualisation uses icons, pictograms and graphics to present information in a whole new way. Read about the states of matter, find out how substances change state, and discover the different properties of materials – all visualised in beautifully designed infographics.

Ideal for children of 9+, and fact and science geeks of all ages, finding out about materials has never been more exciting!
