Interesting Video Clips
Check out these interesting clips featuring some of the scientists covered in the book. Some are short interviews (not overly technical and some produced by kids), news clips about their work, historical footage or short video biographies with pictures or film footage.
There are so many top-notch female scientists in the world, past and present, who are contributing important knowledge and advancements. One book can’t possibly recognize them all, so please consider this book a sampling meant to illuminate and inspire.
