Synopsis

Meet the S.T.E.A.M. pioneer - Rachel Carson - and discover her fascinating life story and inspirations.

Rachel Carson tells the story of this key scientific figure - covering her whole life's journey and her amazing legacy to science today. It follows her early inspirations and her determined and exemplary scientific skills as she uncovered the truth about the damage the pesticide DDT was doing to the environment. A fierce environmental campaigner and best-selling author, Carson is an inspiration to young scientists - in particular girls - as she navigated and succeeded in a male-dominated field.

Masterminds introduces some of the world's great scientists, inventors and artists, retelling their lives and explaining why their work is important. Clear photographic designs bring a real-life quality to these biographies and major S.T.E.A.M. discoveries.


Provides an understanding of scientific discoveries and presents inspirational lives from a variety of diverse backgrounds.

Includes a timeline of the person's life and shows the ongoing legacy that we can see around us today.
