FOR EDUCATORS: BLACK HISTORY MONTH: CELEBRATING BLACK SCIENTISTS
During Black History Month, teachers feature the stories and voices of black scientists, engineers and mathematicians as well as other important figures. This week, share stories of black scientists and the barriers they faced in society and their fields. Stories of George Washington Carver, Percy Julian, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and more continue to inspire the next generations of scientists and we celebrate them for their incredible discoveries.
