Batman Science: The Real-World Science Behind Batman's Gear

When it comes to fighting crime, technology is Batman’s greatest weapon. From his gadget-packed Utility Belt to his high-tech Batmobile, the Dark Knight tackles Gotham’s criminal underworld. But does any of his gear have a basis in reality? Or is it merely the stuff of fiction? Batman Science uncovers the real-world connections to Batman’s tech—and much of it will surprise you!

Smart Moms, Review District - Dana Hinders

"This quirky book looks at Batman’s body armor, utility belt, vehicles, and wings to compare them to real world technology. For any young comic book fan who has ever dreamed of joining the DC universe, this is a compelling concept. In fact, my 10-year-old son quickly grabbed this book from my office and spent the day informing me of various ways to become a real life superhero." - Smart Moms, Review District

Geek Mom - Kelly Knox

"Authors Tammy Enz and Agnieszka Biskup did a fantastic job of splitting up engineering topics into bite-sized chunks of information ideal for kids’ attention spans. You’ll find yourself picking up the easy-to-read book from time to time to skim over interesting topics. . . .a fantastic way to get kids who love superheroes interested in the amazing engineering in the real world." - Geek Mom
