Wonderful women in STEM

by -

This is the under-told story of the woman who discovered the mid ocean ridges and expanded our understanding of the sea floor. Beautifully written and illustrated, I will be buying more as gifts for girls and boys!

Beautiful puzzle!

An important story for girls and women in STEM


A wonderful story about the discovery of the mid ocean ridge system. This well-constructed and beautifully illustrated story documents a woman’s contributions to the geosciences that are too often overlooked, even in college geoscience classrooms.
