“This innovative wellness offering will support Qantas passengers in preparing for, or acclimatising following, their long-haul flight by providing wellness tools for use before, during and after travel,” Mr Taylor said. NOBEL Prize winner and UWA Professor Barry Marshall has written an adventure book with nine-year-old Mary Mccusker in the hopes of inspiring young scientists follow his footsteps.
How to win a Nobel Prize follows Prof Marshall and Mary as they travel through time to learn the secrets behind some of the most fascinating and important scientific discoveries; talking space and time with Albert Einstein, radiation with Marie Curie, and suggesting experiments for young scientists to do at home. A chance encounter between the professor and the daughter of Malcolm and Tonya Mccusker led to the creative work of non-fiction.
Prof Marshall said he enjoyed talking to young people like Mary because she shared similar interests in science and maths.
“Mary is at a great age, where she is starting to get interested in the more intricate areas of science and starting to think about what she will do when she grows up,” he said. Mary said it was amazing to be a character in the book and hoped to inspire other kids to gain an interest in science. “I think the book might help other kids to do their own experiments and get them to learn about other Nobel Prize winners, and how you can win one yourself,” she said. How to win a Nobel Prize, written by Prof Marshall with Lorna Hendry and illustrated by Bernard Caleo, is available from Thursday, April 5 from selected stockists, including the Co-op bookshop at UWA.
