Marie Curie is one of the most famous chemists in history for her groundbreaking discoveries in radioactivity, but many people don't know that her daughter, Irène Joliot-Curie, also pioneered the field of chemistry and received the Nobel Prize in 1935. This engaging book sheds light on incredible women chemists, the obstacles they overcame, and their groundbreaking accomplishments. Mini bio boxes of each featured scientist give readers fast facts, and quotes from the scientists and their contemporaries inspire readers to explore the wonders of STEM for themselves. A gallery spread introduces to even more famous women chemists, while a thorough timeline marks the progress of women in chemistry. A concluding Science Now spread gives readers a view of where the field of chemistry is at today. Charmingly illustrated and full of stunning photographs, this book will be an inspiring addition to any library or classroom.
