Technology: Cool Women Who Code highlights three women that have contributed to technology in STEM and is an excellent book for young girls. The inspirational stories of these successful women in STEM are the perfect introduction to the careers and contributions in technology for young readers. Critical thinking questions are provided throughout the text to further thinking, along with inspirational quotes of females in STEM professions. The text also provides “try it out” boxes which encourages readers to engage in hands-on activities, for example providing links to websites for coding, or by following QR codes that can be accessed by a QR code reader app (additional links are provided in the resource section in the back). This is a much needed book for our time for young readers to be inspired by strong females in the world of STEM, and recommended for both boys and girls.

Booklist  New SERIES NONFICTION SHOWCASE
The women featured in this Girls in Science series share more than a passion for science, technology, engineering, and math. Starting at a young age all were discouraged from pursuing paths in STEM fields. These books seek to rectify this oversight by encouraging today’s girls to consider special topics in science and technology. Each begins with a brief definition and historical overview of the topic before focusing on the livers, careers, successes, and influences of three distinguished women scientists or engineers. Astronomy: Cool Women in Space highlights Nancy Grace Roman, also known as the “mother of Hubble” for her role in the development of the Hubble Space Telescope; Maggie Aderin-Pocock, a black British planetary scientist, educator, and present on the show The Sky at Night; and Andrea Ghez, an astronomer and physicist who researches black holes. Technology: Cool Women Who Code looks at Grace Hopper, a pioneer in developing computer languages; Shaundra Bryant Daily, and African American electrical engineer who studied affective computing and created coding programs for girls; and Jean Yang, who emigrated from China and eventually became an innovative computer scientist. Numerous sidebars include further background information, mini profiles of more prominent females in STEM, and thought-provoking questions. A worthy addition to STEM collections.
