Introduce Young Readers to Some of Our Most Important Contributors to Science and Technology
Notable author Alan Katz has introduced a series of entertaining books for middle grade readers to introduce them to some of our most important contributors to science and technology. It's hard to believe that it is back-to-school time and once again students will be immersed in new curriculum for the new school year. It is sometimes difficult to encourage young readers to read books about science and technology concepts. Katz's series Awesome Achievers will entertain and educate our young students will fun facts about these important contributors that they may not have heard of before. Awesome Achievers in Science and Awesome Achievers in Technology bring to life some contributors that are lesser known but equally important in these fields.
Awesome Achievers in Technology introduces young readers to tech innovators who are not as celebrated as some others, but who have contributed their talents to some of the technology that everyone loves. Young readers will certainly be interested in reading about Nolan Bushnell, an inventor who contributed his talents to Atari and Playstation. Siri is part of our world now and Katz includes the technology gurus Adam Cheyer and Dag Kittlaus in his collection of biographies in this entertaining book. Each technology innovator included in Awesome Achievers in Technology has contributed to technology that is important in our lives today.
