What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Can one girl’s questions change the world? The Science Wide Open series invites your child into the breathtaking world of science!

Women in Physics follows a conversation between an inquisitive young girl, who wonders why things move the way that they do, and a scientifically astute narrator, whose answers are crafted to be both accurate and approachable to a young mind. In this way, learning the basics of physics becomes a natural outcome of enjoying the story.

Concepts covered in the Women in Physics book include: Matter, Mass, Force, Gravity, Atoms, Elements, X-rays, Radioactivity, Observation, Research, Hypotheses, Experiments, …and more!

Science Wide Open also tells the stories of influential female scientists throughout history by weaving together the questions of this spunky young protagonist with the underrepresented but true stories of these women of science!

Scientists profiled include Emilie du Chatelet, Laura Bassi, Marie Curie, Irene Joliot-Curie, and Chien-Shiung Wu.

The Science Wide Open series has been peer reviewed by a team of over 17 PhDs and science educators, along with hundreds of parents!

“You have somehow hit a fine balance between age-appropriateness and factual correctness in both the art and the text.” - Bruce Ravel, BA, MS and PhD in Physics

“As a Biology teacher I appreciate the science, and as a dad of girls ages 6 and 3, I love its simplicity. The illustrations grab attention and the content is manageable.” - Sean O’Neill, H.S. biology instructor and parent of two young girls
