Synopsis: Presents career opportunities for girls in the engineering fields, including jobs in the robotics, construction, and biomedical industries, and describes the education and experience needed for these jobs.

From School Library Journal: Gr 7 Up-This inspiring series encourages girls to pursue careers in STEM-related fields, and while it targets female readers, most of the advice and suggestions could be helpful for a male audience, too. The volumes stress the importance of beginning to pursue one's interests at a young age and to find opportunities to continue learning, including joining clubs and attending summer camps. Each book covers the wide variety of job possibilities available as well as the education and training necessary to succeed in the profession, and tips such as building a portfolio, creating a resume or CV, and networking are offered. The stories of iconic role models, including Rachel Carson, Sally Ride, and Jane Goodall, as well as contemporary tech celebrities Mayim Bialik and Danica McKellar, appear in sidebars that are both empowering and authoritative, and the vast majority of photos feature a multicultural cast of women in science. A frank discussion of gender stereotypes and gender discrimination is disheartening but necessary. VERDICT An important addition for most science or career collections.α(c) Copyright 2011.
