Description

Sciku brings together more than four hundred revealing, poignant, witty haiku on scientific subjects.

Written by students at Camden School for Girls, these poems show that while science gave us the atom bomb, the laptop, and the artificial heart, it remains enigmatic and mind-bogglingly beautiful.

Sciku is edited by Simon Flynn, author of The Science Magpie and a science teacher at Camden School for Girls in London. The girls who contributed to this book range from the ages of eleven to eighteen.
