This week we’re giving away three copies of How to Win a Nobel Prize by actual 2005 Nobel Prize winner, physician Barry Marshall. It’s a funny, fascinating adventure story for ages 9 to 12, and includes experiments that young scientists can do themselves at school or at home.
Ten-year-old Mary has always wanted to win a Nobel Prize. She loves running her own science experiments at home. But how can she become a real scientist and win the greatest prize of all?
One day Mary stumbles on a secret meeting of Nobel Prize winners. Swearing her to secrecy, Dr Barry Marshall agrees to be her guide as she travels around the world and through time to learn the secrets behind some of the most fascinating and important scientific discoveries. They talk space and time with Albert Einstein, radiation with Marie Curie, DNA with Crick, Watson and Wilkins – and much more.
There are many inquisitive minds who will love this book – and it’s a fun one to enter too. This week, tell us what NEW Nobel Prize category they should come up with (i.e. “Nobel Prize for Literature” is an existing one, but you might want the “Nobel Prize for Laundry” etc). Our favourite three will WIN a copy!
THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES! WINNERS WILL BE EMAILED AND ANNOUNCED IN OUR NEWSLETTER.
