Little People, BIG DREAMS provides inspiring messages to children of all ages, in a range of formats, by exploring the lives of outstanding people through stylish illustrations. In Hedy Lamarr, we discover how Hedy Lamarr’s love of machines and scientific curiosity never got in the way of her career as an actress, and she actually used her scientific theories to blaze a trail for women in science. Her technology formed the basis for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as we know today.
