These topics are defined, explored, and explained in graphic detail. Related diagrams, color photographs, fact boxes, and "Try It Yourself" activities supplement the text. The "Stay Safe" boxes tell how to keep yourself and your friends safe from harm. "In Your Day" boxes show how science is a part of your daily life.
