Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This entry in the Major Women in Science series profiles nine women who became movers and shakers in the field of engineering. From Grace Hopper, one of the country’s earliest computer engineers who also created computer languages, to Aprille Ericsson-Jackson, an African American aerospace engineer who helped build NASA satellites, the book showcases diverse women and, in doing so, introduces a wide range of engineering opportunities. Though the layout is a bit bland, the easy-to-follow text features sidebars highlighting each woman’s notable qualities. The profiles also include highlighted words and definitions and a list of related resources. A final chapter further explains the various careers and encourages readers to bust the stereotype of this male-oriented field. An educational inspiration for the next generation of female leaders. Grades 5-8. --Angela Leeper
