A dynamic App that will capture the imagination and get everyone interested in the great concepts of science. There’s video, George Gamow’s original story and even a “Mr. Tompkins Discovers the Atom” comic book!
“The idea of this comic book is brilliant. Daunting topics, such as the theory of relativity, nuclear fission, and radioactivity, are presented here in a form that speaks to and entertains a very general audience. The author even uses analogies that help readers relate to very abstract concepts”.
- Catherine Thureson, Clarion Book Reviews
ﾒThe Adventures of Mr. Tompkins” is based on the popular “Mr. Tompkins” book series by the legendary scientist and author, George Gamow. Gamow' s breadth of knowledge was astounding. He originated the Big Bang theory of the Universe, did groundbreaking work on radioactivity and helped decipher the genetic code.
Along with Isaac Assimov, Gamow is regarded as one of the greatest science popularizers of all time. He wrote books on how the atom works; radioactivity; electromagnetism; the nature of light; and how scientists understand space, time, and motion. However, he’s best known for his classic series of books featuring the lovable character, Mr. Tompkins.
Now, “The Adventures of Mr. Tompkins” is brilliantly brought to life on the iPad. Here’s your chance to learn something and have fun while you’re at it.
Look for upcoming “Mr. Tompkins” Apps featuring the world’s greatest minds, from Madame Curie to Charles Darwin.
