Mega Giveaway Day 126 – Science Wide Open Books

Kids naturally gravitate toward idols in fields that interest them. Music, movies and sports are pretty common. But who says that a child can’t be inspired by a historical figure who made a significant impact on the world. The Science Wide Open book series features women and their contributions to various fields of science including chemistry, biology and physics! Not only is this book set an excellent gift idea for a child interested in STEM, but also for kids in general! We featured these science books from Genius Games last year and are thrilled that such an instrumental concept is available in a book series designed for kids. We’re also excited that Genius Games is providing a set for one of our readers through our Mega Giveaway! You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to enter, simply use the form below!

    “Name a woman who made a major contribution to some field of science.” Ada Lovelace would count, I guess!

  4. Abigail Gibson says:

    I would say Beatrix Potter made a significant impact on science.

  5. Cynthia C says:

    I would say Sally Ride had a big impact on science.

  6. Jessi Housel says:

    Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson the three women who were human computers for NASA. Not only were they remarkable but they had to work in conditions that were more than just unfair as women and as non-white.

    Maria Mitchell

  8. Mia E. says:

    Sad that I Marie Curie is the only one that comes to mind.

  9. Rosanne says:

    Madam Curie was my first thought but I had to Google names and most of them I never heard of. Isn’t it sad that we can’t even think of many women scientists? So glad we encourage more girls and women to pursue the sciences.

    Marie Curie was the first one to come to mind, and to be honest I don’t know if it is because she is a pre-eminent example, or because she was a component of a TV program I just watched!

  20. Donna L says:

    Elizabeth Blackwell – The first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States.

  22. Karen Propes says:

    Dorothy Hodgkin She studied X-ray crystallography, a type of imaging that uses X-rays to determine a molecule’s three-dimensional structure. She determined the structures of penicillin, vitamin B12 and insulin.

    Jane Godall
