Discover the MANY amazing science contributions of women throughout history! From studying the stars to curing disease, understanding plants and animals, pioneering computer studies, and unraveling the secrets of atoms and molecules, women have played a vital role in scientific advances since the ancient world. Yet their contributions have often gone unrecognized or, worse, have been credited to others. With lively text, photography, and art, Super SHEroes of Science sets out to redress the balance and give credit where it’s due. It examines the contributions to various fields of science of individual women from around the world! The aim of this much-needed set of six biography collections is to bring herstory to young readers—and to use engaging interactive prompts and questions to persuade them that anyone can grow up to become a scientist!
