Batman is not your average crime fighting superhero. Lacking any superpowers, technology is Batman’s greatest weapon. He creates out of necessity, using science to give him an edge over his enemies. But is it fiction, or could it really exist?
From the Batsuit and Batarangs to the Batmobile and the Batplane, Batman Science explores real-life science and technology, and their often very real connection to Batman’s remarkable success.

My family are big fans of Batman and we were not disappointed by getting this book where we are enjoying getting the know how behind some of the caped crusaders success.
My elementary student enjoyed reading this graphic novel/comic book. I see him reading it over and over again.
All my kids love this book!
Our 7th grader is a huge fan of superheroes by marvel and dc so when he saw an academic book was names batman science and that it approached the topic through batman (inventor and extreme adventurer) it peaked his curiosity. Great way to get this boys attention.
Although my daughter really isn't into Batman, this book is a fun way to learn science.
