The Big Questions Answered website is launching in June 2024.

Why is science so important? It saves lives, connects us with our natural world and helps us build a brighter future. In fact, science is the key to solving some of our planet’s biggest challenges!

Here at Hungry Tomato, we believe that every child has the potential to change the world with science. That’s why we created The Big Questions Answered – a series of non-fiction narrative books aimed to spark an interest in science and inspire the next generation of problem solvers!
