Maria Sybilla Merian’s Doodle as an inspiring illustrated story for children! Via Timbuktu April 05 2013, 0 Comments

This Google Doodle was featured a few days back about the great Swiss naturalist Maria Sybilla Merian. She documented all the steps of the metamorphosis of many insects and contradicted the belief of her times that insects would spontaneously generate from mud. Maria Sybilla’s story is a great, inspiring story for all the little girls who aspire to become scientists one day. This is why Timbuktu published an amazing illustrated story about her on Timbuktu Magazine.

Here it is!
