Author(s): Camden School For Girls
Gravity: An attractive force Between all objects with mass Just like you and me Physics, Chemistry and Biology are things of magic and wonder. They reveal complex patterns - and often thrilling chaos - at the heart of nature; the strange alchemy of reactions between invisible atoms; the bewildering origins of our universe in the furthest reaches of time and the connections in our brains that create love, fear, joy - and poetry. Sciku brings together more than 400 revealing, poignant, witty haiku on scientific subjects. Written by students at Camden School for Girls - with all royalties from the sale of this book donated to the campaign to modernize their school science laboratory - these poems show that science may have given us the atom bomb, the laptop and the artificial heart but that it remains elegiac, enigmatic and often mind-bogglingly beautiful.
