When Mary Jackson was growing up, she thought being an engineer was impossible for her. Why? After all, she was fantastic at math and science. She worked really hard to learn all she could in school. Why did this smart little girl think she couldn't be an engineer? In Human Computer: Mary Jackson, Engineer, readers ages 5 to 8 explore the life of Mary Jackson, who overcame the challenges of segregation and sexism to become the first female African American engineer at NASA

- Age-appropriate vocabulary, detailed illustrations, a timeline, simple STEM projects, such as designing paper airplanes, and a glossary all support foundational learning for kids ages 5 to 8.

- Perfect for beginner readers or as a read aloud nonfiction picture book
