Anyone can be a scientist. In order to understand that, every week we learn a little about a new scientist. So far, our scientists of the week have been:

  • Temple Grandin
  • George Washington Carver
  • Rachel Carson
  • Albert Einstein
  • Shirley Ann Jackson
  • Lue Gim Gong
  • Kalpana Chawla
  • Mario Molina
  • Marigold Linton

This week’s scientist of the week is Steven Chu. On Friday, each period will hear a short presentation by one of their classmates.


  • Presentations should be done in Powerpoint or Google Slides
  • Presentations should be 4-5 slides, and 3-5 minutes
  • Share your presentation with Mr. Roberts
  • Your presentation should include:
    • Where and when the scientist was born ( & died if they are no longer living).
    • Where they went to school.
    • What was their field of study.
    • What was their biggest or most well known work.
    • How is that work relevant to us today.
