This book is a phenomenal choice for a science classroom. Hidden figures follow several influential figures who worked at different organizations and helped change history as we know it. It follows the path of history, and how they shaped it in aeronautical innovation. I think this is perfect for students who feel as though learning doesn't make a difference! ( )
