Exploring Scientists


1. The first step in this project is to choose an explorer. Please look at the list of scientists on Moodle and decide which ones you would like to learn more about

2. Once you have been assigned a single scientist, you need to research the life of your explorer. Record facts such as her or his birth date (including year), birth place, family, where he or she went to school, any hobbies he or she may have, death (if applicable) etc.  Don't forget to write down where you got your information.

3.  Research the person's most important contributions to science. Remember, you will be presenting this information in class so make sure you write down all the facts about what she or he did and the importance of their research.

4.  Fill in bibliography information. Type a formal bibliography & turn it in
