She Persisted in Science
A STEM-focused addition to the #1 New York Times bestselling She Persisted series!Throughout history, women have been told that science isn&’t for them. They&’ve been told that they&’re not smart enough, or that their brains just aren&’t able to handle it. In this book, Chelsea Clinton introduces readers to women scientists who didn&’t listen to those who told them &“no&” and who used their smarts, their skills and their persistence to discover, invent, create and explain. She Persisted in Science is for everyone who&’s ever had questions about the world around them or the way things work, and who won&’t give up until they find their answers. With engaging artwork by Alexandra Boiger accompanying the inspiring text, this is a book that shows readers that everyone has the potential to make a difference, and that women in science change our world.
