Marine biologist Sara MacSorley is the author of Super Cool Scientists, a story and coloring book celebrating women in science. The book features 22 super cool women in science - each one with a different super cool STEM job. Their jobs range from computer animator to animal behavior researcher to marine biologist (of course Sara had to include that one!). Readers can learn more about the work they do, how they found their path, and what they do for fun outside of their day jobs. The text of the 60-page book is aimed at upper elementary and middle school students. Younger children love the book too because they get to color while they have the super cool science stories read to them.
A woman of many "firsts," Marie Curie is the perfect role model for young women everywhere.

The Marie Curie Alumni Association is bringing Marie's story to the world with the release of the fully illustrated children's book, Marie Curie and the Power of Persistence.
