Can one girl’s questions change the world?
The Science Wide Open series invites your child into the breathtaking world of science!
Women in Physics follows a conversation between an inquisitive young girl, who wonders why things move the way that they do, and a scientifically astute narrator, whose answers are crafted to be both accurate and approachable to a young mind. In this way, learning the basics of physics becomes a natural outcome of enjoying the story. Concepts covered in the Women in Physics book include Matter, Mass, Force, Gravity, Atoms, Elements, X-rays, Radioactivity, Observation, Research, Hypotheses, Experiments, …and more!
Science Wide Open also tells the stories of influential female scientists throughout history by weaving together the questions of this spunky young protagonist with the underrepresented but true stories of these women of science! Scientists profiled include Emilie du Chatelet, Laura Bassi, Marie Curie, Irene Joliot-Curie, and Chien-Shiung Wu. The Science Wide Open series has been peer-reviewed by a team of over 17 PhDs and science educators, along with hundreds of parents!
Women in Physics is the third book in the Science Wide Open series. This easy reader book follows a conversation between an inquisitive young girl, who wonders why things move the way that they do, and a scientifically astute narrator, whose answers are crafted to be both accurate and relatable. This short book covers concepts such as matter, mass, force, gravity, atoms, elements, x-rays, radioactivity, observation, research, hypotheses, experiments, and more while it entertains! How creative, having your child learn the basics of physics while enjoying a story!
I like that in addition to providing age-appropriate facts Women in Physics also tells the stories of several influential female scientists by weaving together the questions of the young girl with the stories of these women of science. Often young girls lack role models, face stereotypes, and undervalue their abilities when it comes to physics and other science fields. Women in Physics and the rest of the Science Wide Open series helps encourage young girls.
