10 Things About the Leading Lady

  • Nova’s inventions don’t always work, but she never stops trying.
  • Her pet box turtle, Georgie, is a great secret-keeper and helps to keep her projects under wraps until the big reveal.
  • Sometimes the neighborhood kids don’t want to test Nova’s inventions, but most of the time they’re excited to see what she made.
  • Nova likes to collect posters of her favorite people and role models. She hangs them over her desk so she can see them while she’s creating.
  • Silver is her favorite color because the robots in her favorite books and shows are made of metal.
  • Like many kids, Nova loves to play hide-and-seek, and she wants to invent an invisibility shirt so she can sneak back to home base before the seeker finds her.
  • She wants to see space and the bottom of the ocean and the inside of a volcano.
  • Nova knows she’ll have to do some great inventing to get to some of those places.
  • When she’s not in her room hard at work on a project, she’s at the library reading about the inventors that came before her.
  • She realizes it’s important to give her brain a break, too, so Nova likes to climb the trees in her back yard and skate with her neighborhood friends.
