What would it be like to build the first robot that could interact with people? Or to study human remains in search of criminal evidence?

In Women's Adventures in Science, readers will learn about the trailblazing women who are leaders in a variety of scientific fields, from robotics to forensics. Each book focuses on the life and work of a woman active in her field today, providing readers with insights into the personal and professional paths that led to their careers in science. The companion Web site, www.iwaswondering.org, offers another way to "meet" these inspiring women scientists. The fun, interactive site builds on the content of the books and includes games, comic strips, videos, activities, and a timeline of women in science.

The tenth title in the original Women's Adventures in Science series, Nature's Machines, is no longer available.
