Trailblazers: 33 Women In Science Who Changed The World

by Rachel Swaby - £5.99  Random House USA Inc (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780399554186 | ISBN 10: 0399554181

Florence Nightingale. Sally Ride. Ada Lovelace.
 
These names and others are etched in history and included here as part of an awe-inspiring collection of profiles of thirty-three of the most influential women in science — women whose vision, creativity, passion, and dedication have changed the world.
 
Aspiring scientists, young history enthusiasts, and children who enjoy learning about the world will be fascinated by these riveting snapshots — and parents who enjoyed the film Hidden Figures will find this to be the perfect extension.
 
Covering important advancements made by women in fields such as biology, medicine, astronomy, and technology, author Rachel Swaby explains that people aren’t born brilliant scientists. They observe and experiment as kids and as adults, testing ideas again and again, each time learning something new.
 
Kids are sure to come away with a renewed curiosity about the world and the realization that the road to discovery can be positively thrilling.
