Super Women in Science

Super Women in Science


By Kelly Di Domenico


Ten women break new ground through centuries of research and discoveries.

It used to be thought that women weren't good at science. But that assumption has been proven wrong. In fact, space, physics, the natural environment and even prehistoric life are only a few of the many scientific areas that have fascinated women for hundreds of years. This book showcases ten great women pioneers of science from North America and other continents. Each has made important contributions to our knowledge and understanding of the world around us.

Praise for Super Women in Science

"Super Women in Science is likely to be inspiring not only children interested in science, but also those interested in history. Although listed as a middle grade book, I think older children will also find it useful." - Growing with Science blog
