Annotation "Discover the amazing women who took science by storm! Women scientists are not new, but they haven't always gotten credit for being so stellar. In Jennifer Calvert and Octavia Jackson's Science Superstars, you'll be introduced to 30 remarkable women whose passion and dedication to all things science led to groundbreaking discoveries, vital medicine, essential technology, and cutting-edge inventions that changed the world. If you use GPS or Wi-Fi, you have Hedy Lamarr to thank for that. If you are fascinated by space travel, look no further than Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson, Stephanie Kwolek, Sally Ride, and Mae Jemison. And if you're spellbound by advances in medicine, the work of Elizabeth Blackwell, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin, and others is indispensable to the world we know today. Discover the triumphs, curiosity, and hard work of female trailblazers whose love of science spurred revolutionary advances." -- Provided by publisher. -- For junior and senior high readers. 2021.
