The Science Behind Batman's Ground Vehicles

Gr 2-4-This series makes clever use of a famous superhero to introduce a variety of STEM facts to primary readers. Each of the four volumes takes one category of Batman's well-known gadgets and presents similar items and concepts from the real world. Some physics-related concepts, such as lift, are featured more than once, as they are relevant both to Batman's cape and his flying vehicles. Many of the comparisons are to military gear, such as stealth tech, body armor, and night vision, as the military has either the most advanced or most recognizable versions of these. There are colorful images of both the Caped Crusader and photos of the actual articles mentioned. VERDICT Recommended for elementary-aged comic book fans, as it will build on a natural curiosity of how Batman is able to accomplish his amazing feats. © Copyright 2016.
