Grace Murray Hopper

Tech Pioneers

Young readers today can hardly go a day without encountering a computerized device. At school, in stores, even in our own pockets-computers are everywhere! With this in-depth biography of female tech pioneer Grace Murray Hopper, a new generation can learn about this trailblazing computer scientist who contributed so much to computer technology. The span of Hopper's life is covered, including her upbringing and formal education. Her triumph of joining the U.S. Navy at a time when women weren't welcomed in the armed forces inspires, as do her continued advances in computer sciences after retirement from the navy.
