Nibweb writer Anna Claybourne – with 150 titles to her name – is on the shortlist for this prestigious award. It’s called Science Makers: Making with States of Matter.
The publisher explains that the book invites young people to ‘learn all about states of matter by following in the footsteps of famous scientists, artists and inventors.
• Turn salt water into drinking water with Mária Telkes’ brilliant invention
• Be inspired by sculptor Néle Azevedo to create melting ice people
• Make ice cream using ice and salt like inventor Nancy Johnson, and much more!’
The winner will be announced in November – meanwhile, we’re all wishing Anna the best of luck.
Making with States of Matter is part of a series Anna’s written that ‘introduces a fascinating variety of historical and modern scientists, artists and makers and their discoveries and creations, along with instructions for a creative project inspired by each maker’s work.’
