Galileo and the Stargazers (audio CD)

Galileo and the Stargazers (audio CD)

Storyteller Jim Weiss mixes folklore, history, and science in these stories of early scientists on an audio CD. For example, the first story of "Archimedes and the Golden Crown" retells Archimedes puzzling through the challenge of determining whether or not the man who constructed the king's crown made it with the seven pounds of gold he was given or a less-precious substitute. In the process, he discovered the principal of atomic mass. Physics, math, and astronomy are critical elements of these stories of Ptolemy, Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, and Newton. Weiss creates different characters with his voice for dramatic effect. Children, even as young as 7 or 8, can understand and learn from these presentations because of the storytelling format. Moreover, the professionalism of the presentations make them appropriate and appealing to teens and adults.
