Let’s face it – when asked for a list of female scientists, most people would start and end with just one name: Marie Curie. History, however, is ﬁlied with women who made astounding scientiﬁc discoveries, and made them in a world that often diminished or even stole those discoveries. It’s time to transform this narrative. The Science Wide Open children’s book series is a celebration of women in science that shares inspirational true stories and teaches basics of Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. It will be launched by Genius Games on Kickstarter on October 4, 2016.
The three book set, Women in Chemistry, Women in Biology, and Women in Physics features a girl ﬁlled with curiosity who can’t help but wonder about the world around her. The text is kid-approved, featuring science and history wrapped up in engaging narrative. The incredible artwork of Brazilian artist Danielle Pioli brings the stories of female scientists like Émilie du Châtelet, Dawn Shaughnessy, and Jane Cooke Wright to life. Recommended ages 4 – 8, the Science Wide Open series will inspire as well as teach.
We all want to foster the natural curiosity of children. Whether we’re examining
the beauty of a butterﬂy’s wings, or wondering why an apple falls down instead
of up, watching our kids and students learn something new is one of life’s joys.
Science Wide Open offers another precious opportunity to enjoy the connection that comes from learning together.
