Logo for Women Life Scientists: Past, Present, and Future
This book of 20 life sciences modules is designed to increase students' exposure both to female science role models and to hands-on, inquiry approach activities, as recommended by the National Science Education Standards. The inquiry-based modules are designed to drop easily into middle and high school life sciences curricula, not to "add on." Each module includes: a brief ... More

I have used these lessons in a high school classroom with predominantly students
from sectors of our community that are under-represented in the sciences. I
was astounded at how much my students appreciated these lessons. These are
inquiry-based lessons that work, but they also show that all kinds of people can
become real scientists.

Technical Remarks:

Only two lessons are available without cost. The other 18 lessons in the book
are equally engaging for students. When I was in Indiana, we located funds (a
CampusCompact Minigrant) so that we could purchase enough copies to "loan" these
books to high school science teachers who were working with scientists.
