Gutsy Girls Go For Science: Programmers

Do you like solving problems? Are you dying to automate even the simplest of processes? Do you always need to know how things work? Programming is the process of breaking down complex tasks into a set of instructions. This is what programmers do when they write code that will make your computer do what you tell it to! In Gutsy Girls Go for Science: Programmers, readers meet five female programmers who made revolutionary discoveries and inventions that changed the way people used technology! Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, the ENIAC women, Dorothy Vaughan, and Margaret Hamilton all broke through barriers of both gender and race to succeed in a field they loved.

Through hands-on STEM projects such as designing a web page, creating a prototype, and learning about variables, kids gain critical thinking skills just like the ones necessary to succeed in the field. Full-color pages and cool facts about women in computing will encourage readers to imagine what they could do by building their programming skills. This book from the Gutsy Girls Go For Science series will encourage her to sit down at the keyboard and give coding a try.
