12 Immigrants Who Made American Science Great

12 Immigrants Who Made American Science Great

Author:

Introduces readers to inspiring immigrants whose science contributions made our country great. From Croatia's Nikola Tesla who helped design electrical systems, to Germany's Maria Goeppert Mayer who studied the atomic nucleus, to Austria's Hedy Lamarr who invented a radio guidance system for torpedos, each profile is presented in a clear, historical context with an emphasis on their legacies.
