Eight-year-old problem-solver Terysa is determined to win the school science fair.

There is only one snag: she has so many good ideas, she doesn’t know which one to choose.

Terysa loves astronomy, so she wants her project to be space-related. But what exactly should she present? Luckily, her sister Shana is an astronomy wiz and is on hand to help. Shana inspires Terysa with the tale of mathematician Dorothy Vaughan, NASA’s first Black supervisor and a computer programming pioneer.

Together, the sisters puzzle out the Python code that will get Terysa’s science project moving all on its own, and will soon have a project that is out of this world. But will it be enough to win the top science fair prize?

My Review

Would it be best for a little girl of color to find a scientist that looks like her to study? With the science fair coming soon, Terysa decides that she has found the topic she wants to work on. She loves and wants to present her project on Dorothy Vaughan.

She and her sister, Shana, work hard to create a Rover and a moon landscape. Terysa is not happy with the Rover. She wants some movement in her project, but how can that happen?

This is a very beautifully illustrated book that is so educational! I love how this book is going to interest many readers into learning more about Dorothy Vaughan.
