Who invented the car? Who first imagined the light bulb? Who is Marie Curie? And why did she win two Nobel Prizes? The things that surround us didn’t just appear out of nowhere, they were conceived by talented inventors, scientists, and engineers. While some creations were the result of team-work and several failed attempts in a lab, others happened by accident.
Who Invented This? is a fascinating trip back through history that shows how now famous scientists and inventors as well as lesser known, but no less creative minds have turned their ideas into great inventions. How they seized opportunities, had faith in their ideas, and the courage to try something new.
