Written by Sandra Braun.
Published by Second Story Press, 2006.
|Many of the useful things we have today started as just one idea
in the mind of just one woman. Who are these women? And where to their
incredible ideas come from?
Another addition to the acclaimed Womens Hall of Fame Series profiles 10 incredible women with an itch to invent. Written in an accessible, engaging and informative style, Incredible Women Inventors examines both the challenges and successes in the lives of Canadian and international problem-solvers. From Madam C.J. Walker, America's first Black female millionaire, to Hedy Lamarr, creator of a code-deciphering system, young readers will have much to motivate them after reading, both in science and in life. From the technology used in cellphones to drugs developed to save cancer patients, women have invented a wide range of useful things. With hard work and determination, the women in this book triumphed to win Nobel Prizes, public acclaim, even an Inventor's Oscar!
Incredible Women Inventors is a book that will inspire young readers to make great discoveries and changes in your own life and in the lives of others.
