Book List

This list from Nick Hood is a compilation of good Physics reads.

School Library Must Buy Science Books

I think that there are a few that are left out.

I think anyone with an interest in Science will also love Douglas Adams “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” series. If you hate reading the radio series is out in audio format and is excellent to have on your small square things.

Don’t think that the 2005 film is anything like the radio series or books. As they say, anything with Don’t Panic on the cover must be good. Douglas Adams read English at Cambridge University, but seemed to have such an uncanny knack for Science.







This is a great little series for lower school students. It is written by Lucy and Stephen Hawkings. Yes Lucy is the daughter of the famous theoretical physics professor.

Regional Space School 2018

The second D&G Space School 2018 is currently being planned. If you live in Dumfries & Galloway, will be in S4- S6 at school in October 2018 and will be studying at least one science then you should be eligible for the trip. There is a lot of fundraising to do before this time, so sign up, and join in. Speak to your School SCIENCE TEACHER for details.

Although the cost is approximately £2,400 we hope to raise a large portion of this, and you can try to raise it all. So don’t let this stop you.

Last time the trip was to cost over £2000 but each student paid a maximum of £1,621 and we had loads less time to raise funds. One student could not afford the trip so got funding from various sources to cover the whole trip.
