A presentation of 20 women who made a difference in science

From Ada Lovelace (computing) to Marie Curie (Physics and Chemistry), these exceptional women enabled the world to advance in all fields of science including space exploration (Mae Jemison), telecommunications (the actress also genius discoverer Hedy Lamarr), and Biology (Rosalind Franklin). An inspiration going counter to preconceived notions about women and science, presenting a diverse group from around the world.

Recommended. "Educators, librarians, and readers will be motivated to further research and share the stories of these heroic minds." —School Library Connection
