Publisher's Synopsis

An attractive force
Between all objects with mass
Just like you and me

Science is a thing of magic and wonder. It reveals complex patterns - and often thrilling chaos - at the heart of nature; the strange alchemy of reactions between invisible atoms; the bewildering origins of our universe; and the connections in our brains that create love, fear, joy - and poetry. Sciku brings together more than 400 revealing, poignant, witty haiku on scientific subjects. Written by students at The Camden School for Girls, these poems reflect on topics as varied as Newton's laws, climate change, time travel and evolution. They are also elegiac, enigmatic and often extremely beautiful.

Dissolving confusion
To some, solutions
Are answers; to chemists they
Are still all mixed up.
