TEHRAN –(Iranart)- A Persian translation of “Buildings and Structures” from British scholar Felicia Law’s Stone Age Science series has recently been published in Persian in Tehran.
Ali Khakbazan is the translator of the book published by the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA).
“Buildings and Structures” is about Leo, who teaches his cat Pallas all about buildings and structures by applying his knowledge of science to their stone age world. Engaging illustrations and stories provide a fun introduction to science concepts, including ramps, forces and loads, tension and more. Information boxes accompany each story to explore real applications of buildings and structures in the natural and designed world.
The IIDCYA has previously published “Energy and Movement” and “Simple Machines” from Law’s Stone Age Science series, which was published with contributions from Gerry Bailey and Mike Phillips.
