Discover how physics is part of our daily lives with Everyday STEM Science – Physics.

Explore how physics is all around us! Learn how physics keeps a plane in the air, find out about light and dark matter, and meet the scientists who have brought physics to life, including Shohini Gose, Michael Faraday and Vera Rubin. Readers can also carry out cool physics experiments at home.

With easy-to-understand text written by STEM expert Dr Shini Somara and lots of colourful artworks, photos and diagrams, readers can best explore where we encounter physics and why it’s even important at all.

The Everyday STEM series makes science relevant to tweens. Instead of telling kids STEM is important and is the key to their future success, these books show readers how we use science, technology, engineering and maths in our everyday lives. While the topics sound high-level and complex, this series makes these concepts age-appropriate and accessible. So, while we can’t promise to teach 9 to 11-year-olds quantum physics, we can explain in the simplest terms the practical applications of STEM.
