Price: £5.99 Post Band B
Who was Isaac Newton and what was his background? Was it the sight of a falling apple that prompted him to think about gravity and the movement of the planets? These are just some of the questions that our team of boys from Isaac Newton’s old school set out to answer by telling the story of this great man, how he made his discoveries in mathematics and physics and how his personality frequently got in the way of his genius.
This book is written for visitors to Woolsthorpe, The King’s School and Trinity College, Cambridge. We hope that it will also be of interest to schools who want an account of the life and work of England’s greatest scientist.
