Brilliant! 25 Catholic Scientists, Mathematicians, and Supersmart People

We are often told that our Catholic faith and scientific pursuits do not go together. Nothing could be further from the truth! A new beautifully illustrated book seeks to show children ages 7 – 11 that being Catholic and involved in STEM go hand in hand.

The husband and wife team of David Warren (writer) and Jaclyn Warren (illustrator) introduce children to many of the Catholics who have been behind groundbreaking discoveries in science and math for centuries. Children will embark on an adventure through history where they’ll meet faith-filled pioneers in every field from anatomy to astrophysics. Some of the people featured include St. Hildegard, Nicolaus Copernicus, Gregor Mendel, Louis Braille, Louis Pasteur, and St. Gianna Beretta Molla. They’ll walk in the footsteps of these supersmart Catholics who changed the world and learn how brilliant they can be when they unite faith and science! It would make a wonderful addition to your homeschool library!

The book may be purchased from the publisher or on Amazon.
