Summary

She's walked them through the steps of the scientific method. And she's shown them that science doesn't have to be intimidating. In her popular Urban Scientist blog, Lee shares backyard science and outreach work. She also writes about her own research and other women and people of color. Discover what this influential scientist is doing to encourage the next generation of scientists.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Growing up in Tennessee, Danielle Lee enjoyed watching urban wildlife more than studying in classrooms, and in graduate school she discovered a professional path that suited her interests: researching animal behavior. Lee earned her doctorate in biology, and along the way, she reached out to help young people, particularly inner-city kids, connect with science as she mentored high-school students as lab assistants. This African American scientist now works with a research team on breeding African giant pouched rats that can be used to sniff out land mines. This short, concise entry in the STEM Trailblazers Bios series is supplemented with sidebars carrying quotes from Lee as well as additional information, such as her inclusion in a LEGO set honoring scientists of color. The book's many illustrations include photos of Lee as well as pictures of schools she has attended, animals, and urban wildlife settings. A good introduction to a working scientist who serves as a role model for others interested in the field.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2016 Booklist"
