Product Details


★ “This inspirational text about underrepresented folks in STEM fields is nonfiction at its best.”School Library Journal, Starred Review

“[A] vibrant collective biography. . . . Readers get insight into the day-to-day activities of various scientists and the included “Advice for Young People” sidebars act as a source of inspiration.”—School Library Connection
