With kids aged 7 to 12 years in mind, this book will nourish readers love of science and develop their respect for Indigenous knowledge at the same time. In consultation with communities, Corey tells us of many deadly feats from bush medicine to bush trackers and introduces us to many amazing scientists, both past and present. Six main chapters cover astronomy, engineering, forensic science, chemistry, land management and ecology. The first scientists passed on the lessons of the land, sea and sky to the future scientists of today through stories, song and dance, and many of these lessons are now shared in this book. Vibrant illustrations by Blak Douglas bring the subjects to life, so youll never think about science as just people in lab coats ever again!
