"Grades 6-8. In breezy profiles of 20 young female inventors, the authors show how perseverance, ingenuity, common sense, and the pure enjoyment of problem solving can lead to award-winning products and inventions. The profiles, which are arranged by type of invention--convenience, safety, work-saving, etc.--include insight into many products that were entries in Invent America! or SBG Invention Convention competitions. Other sections of the book explain how to turn an idea into a product and list organizations to contact. Also included is an extensive selection of further readings. Black-and-white photographs and diagrams illustrate the text."
