Summary, etc.:
Stastics tell us that women are underrepresented in STEM careers. Yet women have created many of technology's greatest innovations. Ada Lovelace is considered one of the world's first computer programmers. Six women were the programmers of the ENIAC computer during WWII. While women's contributions to technology are often overlooked, this book celebrates the lives and accomplishments of women inventors and innovators throughout history. Learn about these remarkable women who changed science, technology, and the world as we know it.--backcover
