Abu Dhabi International Book Fair's Virtual Session Series Continues with ‘Horrible Science' Author Nick Arnold
 

Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, the British writer conducted weird and wonderful experiments from his laboratory to boost children’s interest in science

 

Abu Dhabi, UAE, 04 May, 2020:   With the postponement of the 30th edition of the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) until next year, a number of authors and artists who were booked to appear at the event have instead been presenting Virtual Sessions from their own homes.


Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), the latest live stream took place on Thursday evening with Nick Arnold, the British writer of weird and wonderful science and history books for children. Presented from his laboratory in the UK, the online show gave viewers the chance to see Arnold’s quirky experiments and fun stories from the safety of their own homes.


With help from his assistant Mr Cuddles, a velociraptor dinosaur, Arnold detailed how the dinosaurs were wiped out by an asteroid 66 million years ago. He was then accompanied by a rabbit named Mr Fluffy to explain how gravity and friction worked. He also demonstrated an optical illusion that appeared to allow one to look through one’s own hand with a cardboard tube. 


Arnold is best known for writing the Horrible Science series of books, which combine humour and horror to make science more accessible for children and enthuse a hunger for knowledge and learning. He has also written the Wild Lives series and presented the Horrible Histories television show on Nickelodeon.


Previous ADIBF Virtual Sessions included a presentation by famous illustrator Korky Paul, in which he read and drew from his multi-million selling Winne and Wilbur series, and another with Annabel Karmel, the renowned nutrition expert and cookbook author, who demonstrated a healthy and delicious recipe for children.
