Wonder Women of Science: How 12 Geniuses Are Rocking Science, Technology, and the World

What does it take to be a STEM genius? Searching the cosmos for a new Earth. Using math to fight human trafficking. Designing invisible (and safer) cars. Unlocking climate-change secrets. All of this groundbreaking science, and much more, is happening right now, spearheaded by diverse female scientists and engineers. Check out these exciting, highly readable profiles of a dozen contemporary women who are on the cutting edge of scientific research.

Meet aerospace biomedical engineer Dr. Dava Newman, veterinary neurosurgeon Dr. Evelyn Galban, immunoengineer Dr. Kaitlyn Sadtler and nine other science superstars and hear them tell in their own words not only about their fascinating work, but also about their childhoods and the paths they traveled to get where they are — paths that often involved failures and unexpected changes in direction, but also persistence, serendipity, and brilliant insights. Their careers range from computer scientist to microbiologist to unique specialties that didn’t exist before some amazing women profiled here created them. Here is a book to surprise and inspire not only die-hard science fans, but also those who don’t (yet!) think of themselves as scientists.
