From the Series Searchlight Books ™ — Celebrating Failure

  • Interest Level: Grade 3 - Grade 5   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

Science is all about the pursuit of knowledge. But sometimes that pursuit leads scientists down the wrong path, and things can go spectacularly wrong! Learn about some of the biggest fails in the history of science, from scientists accidentally poisoning themselves to accidentally poisoning the environment. Nuclear meltdowns, a space telescope that didn’t work, and fake science all help illustrate how scientists sometimes fail and how they learn from their missteps.
