From Johannes Gutenberg’s 15th-century printing press to Charles Hard Townes’ relatively recent development of the laser, this fascinating coloring book encompasses five centuries of technology. Forty-five finely detailed drawings depict inventors and their historically important devices, giving students an inspiring survey of advances in science and industry. Samples include the steam engine, submarine, battery, light bulb, and aqua lung.
Informative captions, usually several paragraphs long, also provide background information about the inventors and their inventions, making this an ideal supplement for any science or history curriculum or unit studies.
