About

Overview

Science is one field in which diversity and its benefits are embraced, because scientists often collaborate in teams to figure out the best ideas and build off the ideas of other colleagues. Readers will learn about the challenges and successes of sundry scientists including the brilliant Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, Iranian Fields Medal winner Maryam Mirzakhani, and the inspiring story of the dazzling mind of physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking, who persevered despite incredible physical limitations. This informative volume discusses STEM and STEAM initiatives to encourage minorities to become involved in science, and inspire readers, too.
