Kimberly commented on Do Role Models Matter?

Hi Jessica 

I really like the new book Ada Twist. I always read Rosie Revere to get my students talking about female engineers. I just saw a resource from NASA that continues the idea of exploring real female engineers:  http://www.nasa.gov/education/womenstem

I also used a great website this year to explore real scientists. It went nicely with a lesson where we sketch a scientist and then analyze where our ideas come from using biographies and media. The link was about real scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. it also talked about them on a personal level. It is called the Secret Lives of Scientists:
