Mysterious people called the Purposarians have stolen the hope element with the intention to conquer the world. The only ones that can stop the Purposarians from carrying out their evil intentions are Branko and Stanko, who can think. The boys will have to use their knowledge of physics and chemistry to find the Elementarium, a secluded place where hope is held captive. On their journey, they are accompanied by a cheerful, positive Proton and a grumpy, negative Electron.
The value of this book lies in the fact that the child reading it is invited to think and solve the problems that Branko and Stanko encounter. That way, the child activates thought processes through which they unobtrusively acquire information from the complex physics and chemistry learning units, and thus learn.
The brain of today’s children works differently than before: it receives and processes information faster. That’s why the books like this one, that are in accordance with the dynamics of children’s brain and deal with school content through an exciting adventure, are the books of the future. Therefore, the popular science book “A Trip to the Elementarium” should be mandatory reading for every school kid.
