Additional Reader & Professional Reviews:

While traditional collective biographies celebrate luminaries from the past, this book introduces 12 women who are actively engaged in STEM fields...Based on interviews with the 12 women, the text includes lengthy quotes, which add a personal tone to each chapter...it’s quite engaging. The color illustrations include some snapshots of these “wonder women” as kids and a creative, full-page portrait of each as an adult, accompanied by visual elements suggestive of her field. In this unusually appealing guide to STEM career pathways, students will find inspiration, motivation, and useful information in equal measure.
- Booklist (starred review)

Brief, inspiring biographies of 12 female scientists are accompanied by interesting information on an array of scientific topics... The women run the gamut, including a forestry engineer, a computer science engineer, and a paleoclimatologist...An invaluable and highly plausible road map from youthful ambition to future success. Outstanding backmatter rounds out this excellent presentation. A fine choice for inspiring future scientists.
- Kirkus (Starred Review)

Whether it’s designing new suits for NASA, working on video game systems, or tracking an endangered species, the women profiled in this title are rockstars in their field. The 12 easy-to-read biographies detail the careers and accomplishments of each woman...This collection can spark readers to follow their passion. Great for those looking to expand their STEM biographies and collected biography sections
