Readers will enjoy digging into Wus personal story, beginning with her childhood in China where her father encouraged her curiosity and interest in science.

Students can trace Wus success from her education at the University of California-Berkeley, where she met physics giants Oppenheimer, Fermi, and Segre, to her secret involvement with the Manhatten Project and her tenure as a researcher and professor at Columbia University. Engaging text and photos offer insight on topics such as nuclear physics, beta decay, and the law of parity. While a timeline, glossary, and index supplement the text, an entertaining science activity allows readers their own hands-on experience based on the science that inspired this womans groundbreaking career.
