Can one girl's questions change the world?
Women in Physics follows a conversation between an inquisitive young girl, who wonders why things move the way they do, and a scientifically astute narrator, whose answers are both accurate and approachable to a young mind. In this way, learning the basics of physics becomes a natural outcome of enjoying the story.
