The seventh book in the Girls Who Could series, The Girl Who Could Rock the Moon: Mary G. Ross and the Magic of STEM inspires girls and boys of all ages to create an exciting new world through the exploration of STEM: science, technology, engineering and math. Mary G. Ross was a gifted mathematician and became the first female Native American engineer in the United States at a time when women in STEM were rare. She was brave, she was bold and she helped take us to the moon. Her equations solved in-flight problems for rockets and jets, and she wrote a traveler’s manual to the planets. Much of her work remains classified to this day, but her inspiring story is yours to enjoy. Does your little one like technology? Do they like to ask questions? Encourage them to see math as a game they’ll want to play with this bright, entertaining read.
