Reviews

The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
"Throughout time, girls have struggled to find role models in science. This series - Girls In Science - showcases women in various roles who are standouts in their fields of study. These two books [Meteorology: Cool Women Who Weather Storms, and Architecture: Cool Women Who Design Structures], along with the others in the series, do a wonderful job of highlighting the diversity of many fields of science. They focus on the variety of jobs within each field, the history of the field and the rewards of working hard to achieve these positions. This series is one that will benefit many young readers and can broaden our views. Whether just reading for fun or using as supplemental learning resources, these books are packed full of encouraging and helpful information." Read the complete review online.

Detailed Book Description

Does the weather fascinate you? Are you curious about where storms get their strength? Do you ever think about what the long-term effect of weather patterns will be on the earth? Meteorology: Cool Women Who Weather Storms introduces readers ages 9 to 12 to three women working in meteorology who are making an impact and inspiring future generations of meteorologists.

  • Introduces readers to real women who are making strides in the field of meteorology, making career goals feel obtainable.
  • Educators have observed that interest in science and math tends to dissipate in girls between the ages 7 to 10 and have cited the value of role models to a female student's continued interest in STEM subjects.
