Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World is a book that highlights 50 women and their contribution to various fields of science, delivering the information using charming illustrations that will both intrigue and teach children.
The book is filled with infographics about topics such as lab equipment, an illustrated scientific glossary, and more.
But the book doesn’t just highlight the obvious scientific contributors like Marie Curie or Jane Goodall. Instead, it includes some lesser-known pioneers including Katherine Johnson (the woman who calculated the trajectory of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon) and Lise Meitner (the Austrian physicist who led a team of scientists to discover nuclear fission of uranium).
Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World celebrates extraordinary scientists who paved the way for a new generation of engineers, mathematicians, physicists, and more, and it presents its information in a way that is informative enough to teach adults and visually attractive enough to entice influential children to read it. What’s more, its visually attractive nature makes it a great nerdy coffee table book to add to your collection.
