Meet three inspirational women from the world of science: Ada Lovelace, Amelia Earhart, and Marie Curie!
In these remarkable true stories, learn how three women overcame hardship to achieve great success in science. Ada—despite growing up without a father and becoming very sick with measles as a child—went on to become the world's first computer programmer. Amelia challenged conventional stereotypes, showing the world how brave and adventurous a woman could be by setting aviation records and undertaking dangerous flying missions. Marie Curie was unable to go to college because she was a woman, but became a renowned scientist and eventually won the Nobel Prize for Physics. Each of these moving books features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the woman's life.
