A simple timeline helps readers see the span of his achievements over time.

Amazing Science uses the extraordinary and mind-boggling facts about science to introduce children to the core topic of electricity at KS1. Each spread starts with an interesting fact supported by a dramatic picture to engage the child's interest. It then seeks to explain, in simple terms, the science behind it. 'Your Turn' boxes then challenge children to look around them for similar examples, such as what machines can they see that also use electricity.
