Description

The scientists, doctors, engineers, inventors, innovators, and disrupters in Girl Genius have done incredible things--from developing life-saving medical breakthroughs and uncovering lost cities to inventing taco-delivery copters and experimenting with robots.

Each mini-biography tells a story of a woman who has used her STEM skills to change the world. These women have saved countless babies' lives, revolutionized the way scientists studied insects, invented products to help victims of natural disasters, and used satellites in space to solve dinosaur mysteries. They are protecting the environment, perfecting self-driving cars, designing the buildings of the future, and pioneering new practices to save people--and pets too! They're building robots on YouTube, creating plastic alternatives out of cactus slime, and turning killer snails into life-saving medicine.

These inspiring stories also provide advice and strategies for any reader who wants to follow in the footsteps of creative, resourceful, boundary-shattering women like Marie Curie, Stephanie Kwolek, Keiana Cave, Grace Hopper, Sha Yao, Sarah Parcak, Katherine Johnson, and more.

Boing Boing cofounder and author Carla Sinclar interviewed many of the game-changing women in the book to get to the heart of their amazing STEM stories.
