Women in Science series takes a highly visual approach to telling the stories of important women scientists. Features include bite-sized text telling the story of a scientist's life, groundbreaking works, and legacy for young readers (Ages 7-8).Ada Lovelace's brilliant talent for mathematics and huge imagination helped to pave the way for the invention of the computer software that powers the world around us.
