This boxed gift set of three hardcover books introduces three inspirational women from the world of science: Ada Lovelace, Amelia Earhart, and Marie Curie! Little dreamers can learn about the lives of these incredible women whose work helped change the world.
Through these remarkable true stories, learn how three women overcame hardship to achieve great success in science. Ada -- despite growing up without a father and becoming very sick with measles as a child -- went on to become the world's first computer programmer. Amelia challenged conventional stereotypes, showing the world how brave and adventurous a woman could be by setting aviation records and undertaking dangerous flying missions. Marie Curie was unable to go to college because she was a woman, but became a renowned scientist and eventually won the Nobel Prize for Physics. Each of these moving books features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the woman's life.
