Millie Micro Nano Pico Book 7 in which the electrons invite Millie to a party and she is shocked by antimatter By Tiziana Stoto
Paperback: $10.74
Prints in 3-5 business days
(2 Ratings)
Millie micro nano pico Book 7 is very special: most of the questions Millie asks the electrons in this book were suggested by children who read the previous stories. Here is what they wanted to... More > know: Do electrons have mums and dads? How are they born? How old are they? How long do they live for? Do they grow up? As well as answering these questions, the electrons introduce Millie to static electricity, radioactivity and antimatter. Many thanks to Danielle, Josh, Mia, Tamzin and Tylah from Raumati Beach School, New Zealand, for helping Millie in this adventure. Would you like to help Millie too?

Millie Micro Nano Pico Book 6 In Which Millie Meets Two Neutrinos and Watches Them Race to the Moon and Back By Tiziana Stoto
Paperback: $10.69
Prints in 3-5 business days
(2 Ratings)
Millie micro nano pico Book 6 is about the elementary particles called neutrinos. Neutrinos are everywhere, but are very hard to detect because they don’t interact much with the other... More > particles. Their mass is extremely small, they have no charge, and they travel nearly as fast as light. In this adventure Millie realises just how fast light travels, when Lucille, the photon, and two neutrinos race each other to the moon and back. She finds out that photons have no mass and that they always travel at the same speed. Einstein’s special theory of relativity is based on the assumption that the speed of light, just under 300 million meters per second, is constant. These books will stimulate children’s curiosity.

Millie micro nano pico Book 4 is an introduction to electricity. It starts with Millie discovering that her little friends are called electrons because they carry an electric charge. At first she is... More > scared of anything electric, but she ends up having an exciting adventure. She follows the electrons as they move around a circuit in an electric current. In this adventure Millie learns about electric charges, electric fields, electric conduction, and phonons. These books will stimulate children’s curiosity. Questions are more than welcome.

Millie Micro Nano Pico Book 5 In Which Millie Wishes She Were More Attractive and Wonders About Quarks By Tiziana Stoto
Paperback: $10.74

Millie micro nano pico Book 5 is about electric charge and in particular the elementary charged particles called quarks. The protons and neutrons inside the atomic nucleus are made of quarks.... More > Millie wants to know how to tell the difference between a neutron and a proton. She discovers that only protons are charged and that their positive charge is the opposite of the negative charge of an electron. In this adventure Millie learns about the attraction between opposite charges. She also finds out that masses are attracted because of gravity, and that there are similarities between electric and gravitational fields. These books will stimulate children’s curiosity.

Millie micro nano pico Book 3 in which Millie meets some photons at the playground By Tiziana Stoto
Paperback: $10.69
Prints in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
Book 3 is a playful description of the interaction between electrons and photons. At first Millie is confused by the game that the particles play, but after learning about energy levels, quantisation... More > and in particular the law of conservation of energy, she starts having fun. The ideas in this adventure are related to the photoelectric effect, which is impossible to understand in terms of classical physics. Einstein was awarded the Nobel prize for his explanation of the effect. This was one of four remarkable discoveries he made in 1905, which included the theory of relativity. The physics concepts in this story are important for the production of electricity from solar energy, and for the operation of modern electronic devices, like smartphones, computers, and cameras. This series of books will stimulate children’s curiosity. Questions are more than welcome. Send Millie a message at millie.kolorato.com or on Facebook at www.facebook/milliemicronanopico/.< Less
Millie micro nano pico Book 1 in which Millie meets two electrons and her adventures begin By Tiziana Stoto
Paperback: $10.69
Prints in 3-5 business days

Millie micro nano pico is a series of witty educational stories about the subatomic world that introduce a few basic concepts of quantum physics. The magic words “Millie micro nano pico”... More > are used by Millie, the pussycat, to become small enough to play with elementary particles such as electrons, photons, and neutrinos. In Book1 children get to know Millie and learn in a simple and playful way about electrons: the intrinsic nature of their spin, and their wave-particle duality. Children love this book. Here are some of their comments: I like Millie talking to the electrons and her magic words. Oliver, 8. The pictures are great because they give an idea of how small everything is. Maddy, 9. It’s a fun way to learn science instead of reading words and words. Amelie, 11. I liked this book because I understood everything. Marli, 11. These books will stimulate children’s curiosity.

Book 2 is a humorous introduction to magnetism based on the orientation of electron spins. Children learn about magnetic fields, attractive and repulsive forces and the difference between magnetic... More > and non-magnetic materials. Children love this book. Here are some of their comments: I liked Book 2 a lot more than Book 1 because it was cool to learn about magnetism. Josh, 10. I was more involved and used my brain a little more than with Book 1. Mia, 10. My favorite bit is when Millie said "ohh that's how my door works". Hannah, 9. I liked this book because there are facts but it's a story. Gilles, 11. These books will stimulate children’s curiosity. Questions are more than welcome.

Millie micro nano pico Book 8 is for all the children who asked Millie to find out more about the inhabitants of Bosonville and Fermioncity. Millie knows that photons are bosons and electrons are... More > fermions. In this adventure, she discovers that you can put as many photons as you like on the same energy level. On the other hand, only a pair of electrons with opposite spin can occupy the same energy level. Like all fermions, electrons obey the Pauli exclusion principle. Millie also learns about the nature of X-rays and convinces herself that elementary particles are “unbreakable”. Millie needs your help!

Millie micro nano pico Book 9 is about the basic principles of lasers. Millie watches how electrons and red photons cooperate to generate a laser beam. At first, she is intrigued by the process of... More > optical pumping. Later, she realises its utility, when she understands the difference between light from a common bulb and light from a laser. In this adventure, Millie revisits the concept of absorption, emission and energy levels introduced in Book 3, but here she sees their practical application. Millie needs your help!
