Famous Inventors and Scientists
We’ve combed the internet to find the best available free resources about each person, reviewed them for their educational value, and have previewed everything to make sure that any potentially objectionable content is known to parents in advance so you can determine appropriateness for your own children.
We have compiled and organized our findings into an easy-to-use single page that includes all links, videos, and information for you, so you can easily get using the materials that best suit your family.
These will be great as a stand-alone supplement for your kids that need or want more to learn about, or while used in conjunction with your regular science curriculum. Each resource has a good amount of quality videos, too, which are helpful for pre-readers as well as dyslexic kids and others that struggle with reading. We have found these resources invaluable for quick, safe research for papers and projects as well!
You can check out our Archimedes resource here. All of our Inventor and Scientist resources are formatted the same way*, and are accessible in a members-only area. (Actually, our Inventors have now been upgraded to our new visually-friendly layout and will be getting 5 Day Tours in 2017. Scientists will also be upgraded as soon as possible.)
