The Queens of STEAM series explores the life and work of women who've made a big impact in a specific area of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). In this edition, newly independent readers meet Bertha Parker, an indigenous american of Abenaki and Seneca descent, who made her mark as a trailblazing Archaeologist in 1930 when she discovered the skull of an exstinct ground sloth in a Nevada cave. All hail, Bertha Parker!

Each title in the Queens of STEAM ends with a glossary and activities for aspiring STEAMERS.
