MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids Wins 2008 IPPY Book Award

Scottsdale, AZ | Posted on June 4th, 2008

MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids, written by Marlene Bourne and published by Scottsdale-based Bourne Research LLC, is a bronze medal recipient of the 12th Annual Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Award in the Juvenile/Young Adult Non-Fiction category. Honoring the best independently published books of the past year, more than 3,100 entries came from 16 countries around the world; winners included works from renowned publishers such as Afton Historical Society Press, Harvard University Press and Yale University Press.

"What [the book] does is encourage a student's natural sense of wonder by taking a close look at some of the things in his or her life that might normally receive little more than a passing thought," writes the Virginia Journal of Science Education. "The detailed and colorful images are powerful."

MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids provides a basic introduction to today's coolest technologies. It explores what we can find at the micro- and nano-scale, and then takes a look at various MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) devices and nanomaterials; readers learn how they work and why they're useful in all kinds of products. Although written for students ages 11-14 to inspire interest in science and engineering, younger children and adults may also benefit from the easy-to-read explanations.

Printed by Sentinel Printing Company of St. Cloud, Minnesota, MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids also recently won Gold in the Central Minnesota Printing Professionals 2008 Galley of Superb Printing, a prestigious honor among printers.

MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids (ISBN: 9780979550560; Price: $24.95) is available online at Amazon.com; signed copies of the book can be purchased via BourneResearch.com. Bulk discounts are available; please contact Bourne Research at 480-695-0521 for details.
