12 Scientists with Disabilities


One of the greatest minds in history, Stephen Hawking had an incurable disease that left him unable to move or speak. Karin Muraszko is a neurosurgeon who specializes in helping children. She also has spina bifida. After mountain climber Hugh Herr lost both of his legs to frostbite, he became a biomechanical engineer. Today he designs bionic arms and legs. This book spotlights 12 scientists who didn't let disability keep them from realizing their potential. Each chapter includes attention-grabbing photos and fascinating facts.
