Who is a Scientist?

Published on

A good and quick presentation about a classes perception of who a scientist is. It can be anyone. See what stereotypes are focused in on (nerds, glasses, crazy hair, as well as what the focus on gender is). Can be used as an introduction to having students research about notable scientists, from different time periods, all parts of the world, and either gender.
