Summary
"When Mary Jackson was growing up, she thought being an engineer was impossible for her. Why? After all, she was fantastic at math and science. She worked really hard to learn all she could in school. Why did this smart little girl think she couldn't be an engineer? Elementary aged readers explore America's history of segregation through the life of Mary Jackson, who overcame challenges to become the first African American woman to work at NASA!"--Provided by publisher
