STEM Girls Books - Zelda the Curious Review from a woman in STEM: Reading about "Zelda the Curious" and her adventures in assembling and disassembling the world around her reminded me so much of my childhood!

I have a niece who is very much like Zelda and I can't wait to share this book with her and my sister! -Tamara Robertson, Actress and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineer
