Isabel Thomas

12:45 – 1:30


Science is not about knowing lots of facts. It’s about asking questions! They can be sensible questions. They can be silly questions. Best of all, they can be IMPOSSIBLE questions! Do animals have imaginations? Are feelings made of atoms? What’s the opposite of a spider?

Award-winning science author and journalist Isabel Thomas takes families on a whirlwind tour of the most bamboozling questions scientists (and children!) have ever asked, showing how silly questions lead to serious science. You’ll discover the speed of dark, how to get the most out of your eyebrows, and why you can never remember falling asleep.

Bring your own impossible questions for a chance to star in Isabel’s next book!

“the sort of book that could ignite lifelong scientific curiosity.”  The Guardian
