STEM Superstar Women – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

. . . the content covered is fascinating and could spark fiery discussion on sexism and inequality. All of the featured scientists had to overcome gender biases, and for many women, that also included breaking color and age barriers. Readers will be surprised to learn that computing in the early 1880s, the invention of a remote control submarine torpedo during World War II, and the 1969 Apollo 11 space mission were successful because of the contributions of women. In addition, the nonfiction text features will also aid in classroom/research report use.
