Eureka! Lessons From The News - Great Innovators


This book is uniquely positioned to provide lesson material in line with the 5 Core Competencies of the Ministry of Education's Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programme - Self Awareness, Self Management, Relationship Management Skills and Responsible Decision Making.

Eureka! contains eight inspirational stories on famous innovators from various social and cultural backgrounds, supplement with activities formulated to give children a deeper understanding of moral values.

Eureka! is fully coloured and beautifully illustrated, and is written by LRD's resident teacher-journalist to suit children aged 7 and above. To help young leaders through the the character-building lessons in the book, Dot characters highlight key points in the story and guide them through the activities in each chapter. The eight dots are:

  • Persevering Dot - The Wright Brothers, who invented the first plane after many trials and errors. 
  • Determined Dot - Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone after decades of experiments and research. 
  • Purposeful Dot - Samuel Morse, who developed an efficient code of communication for the telegraph.
  • Adventurous Dot - Ferdinand Magellan, who led an expedition to the Spice Islands.
  • Creative Dot - Michelangelo, the renowned Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, poet and engineer.
  • Resilient Dot - Marie Curie, who overcame poverty and social prejudice to become a two-time Novel laureate.
  • Motivated Dot - Louis Braille, who devised a system of writing for the blind.
  • Innovative Dot - Dr Yoshiro Nakamatsu, who has over 3,200 inventions to his name.

Each story helps explain abstract moral values to children by showing them how these values were put into action, and lets them discover how displaying these virtues can benefit themselves and others.
