Gamebook: Your adventures at CERN - Fun way to learn Science

Your adventure at CERN is no ordinary story, it is no ordinary adventure book, it is a game book with adventure and a fun way to learn science!  

Learning through play is an amazing way to teach children and Letizia Diamante captures this perfectly.

About CERN

CERN is the European Council for Nuclear Research.  The name CERN is derived from the acronym for the French "Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire".  CERN's mission is to perform world-class research in fundamental physics and unite people from all over the world to push the frontiers of science and technology, for the benefit of all.

The Introduction of Your Adventures at CERN shows a map of CERN and I would recommend you, as the parent/carer, to read through the map to help you understand what goes on so you can guide your child through the book if they need assistance.

About Your Adventures at CERN Book.

As soon as you open this book, YOU become the main character! You will be catapulted to CERN, one of the world's most famous particle physics laboratories.  

You can choose to play the role of a researcher, a student or a tourist, but keep your eyes open for a threatening dinosaur… Is it coming from the nearby Jura Mountains, the same place that gave Jurassic its name? 

Prepare yourself for a rather bizarre adventure filled with brain-tickling facts about particles and science wonders. Unfold the story, explore the unsolved mysteries of the Universe, and most importantly, have fun with the games and quizzes

The above is taken from Letizia's website which I strongly recommend you visit, not only does it cover her new book and information on the main characters, but it also has a memory game, suggestions on science projects to complete and equations on the "for those who love balloons"

My thoughts on Your Adventure at CERN

My 10-year-old son loves this book, he enjoys the quizzes and challenges and it has become a coffee table book in our house.  It is thick, with over 170 pages filled to the brim with knowledge and challenges on each page.  

He is yet to work through the pages methodically, he flicks the book open and completes what he sees, he is just realising that he has options at the end of each page which leads him off in a different direction.  

I have only lightly guided him with this book, as I don't want it to become a workbook for him.  I want him to pick it up as and when he likes, which is exactly what he does.

Where to buy Your Adventures at CERN

Your Adventure at CERN can be purchased from Waterstones and Amazon* for under £10, which I feel will be a good return on your money as there is so much in this book, it will keep your budding scientist entertained and absorbed for many hours to come.
