Book Spotlight: Awesome Achievers

Awesome Achievers in Technology by Alan KatzAwesome Achievers in Science by Alan Katz

Each book has twelve mini biographies about lesser known people who made amazing achievements in science and technology. The biographies are followed by humorous writings - sometimes poems, songs, comics, or  conversations.  Learning and humor go together well. 

The twelve people chosen are diverse. Readers might have heard of some of them (especially Sally Ride), but many will be new to readers. I loved learning about Roberta Williams as I played some of those computer games growing up. But knew nothing about her.
