Women in Engineering

We rated this book:


Over eighty-four percent of all working engineers are male. For that reason alone, this book becomes necessary to entice girls into curiosity and wonder, which lays a foundation for an interest in the sciences. For too long, girls have been inculcated into a belief that they lack ability in math and science. The author breaks that belief by simply telling what engineering is all about; basic curiosity leads to questions about how things work. Along with this easy-to-follow story are delightful illustrations as a young girl in pigtails navigates how questions can lead to a career. The little book also delivers brief biographies of women who are notable but underrepresented in this field. In that way, adults will be better informed about engineering history. Simply stated, the author says Engineers bring dreams into the world, and who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

At the back of the book is a glossary of specialized fields in engineering; one for every interest. This book is a part of a series to introduce girls to new fields of endeavor, which is certainly a worthy and necessary cause.
