Technology: Cool Women Who Code highlights three women that have contributed to technology in STEM and is an excellent book for young girls. The inspirational stories of these successful women in STEM are the perfect introduction to the careers and contributions in technology for young readers. Critical thinking questions are provided throughout the text to further thinking, along with inspirational quotes of females in STEM professions. The text also provides "try it out" boxes which encourages readers to engage in hands-on activities, for example providing links to websites for coding, or by following QR codes that can be accessed by a QR code reader app (additional links are provided in the resource section in the back). This is a much needed book for our time for young readers to be inspired by strong females in the world of STEM, and recommended for both boys and girls.
