  • Chris Woodford wins 2016 Science Writing Award

    17 Oct 2016

    Congratulations to Chris Woodford who has won the book category in the 2016 Science Writing Awards awarded by the American Institute of Physics Atoms Under the Floorboards: The Secret Science Hidden in Your Home.

    The judges enjoyed its “accessible, eloquent discussion of a variety of science topics using phenomena of our homes or everyday lives,” and describe it as an “excellent example of science writing for the public.”

    Woodford chose to explore writing about environmental topics because “communication about the environment is a major failure – possibly the biggest and most disastrous for the scientific community,” he said.

    Woodford has written, co-written, and edited dozens of science education books, including the best-selling “Cool Stuff” books, which have sold nearly 4 million copies worldwide. He has also created a science education website:

    “Running a science and technology website, I get a wonderful barrage of questions from people wanting to know how and why things work or don’t work in the way they expect,” Woodford said. “After replying to quite a few of these, I realized there was a common thread: many people don’t understand the science of ‘everyday stuff,’ and there was a need for an accessible introduction.”
