內容簡介 為什麼東西可以浮起來？活體的細胞裡有什麼？什麼東西讓長毛象變的這麼巨大？好奇的長毛象想知道答案，於是牠和小老鼠連袂出擊，參與各種物理、化學、生物等各種科學實驗，探討生活中的科學：照X光、溜滑梯體驗摩擦力、玩變大變小變胖的鏡子反射遊戲、用尾巴測試酸鹼值、小老鼠撐在長毛象上，鑽入花朵探索秘密、小象模型透過光投射變成超級大象等…，讓科學變的幽默有趣。David Macaulay's troupe of curious mammoths lead you through the basics of physics, biology, and chemistry in this unconventional and highly original guide to science.From the interior of an atom to the solar system and beyond, the mammoths seek to understand the science! These intrepid science demonstrators will go to incredible lengths to educate and entertain. They wrestle with magnets to understand their powerful force, make mammoth models of different materials to explore what gives them mass, and step into an X-ray machine to reveal the bones beneath their woolly exterior.Observing and recording the mammoth's behaviour is bestselling illustrator David Macaulay, whose How Machines Work won the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize in 2016. Renowned for his ability to explain complex ideas with simple genius, Macaulay captures the oddball humour of his subject matter, making Mammoth Science the perfect introduction to scientific principles for the young and the young-at-heart.
