Science Role Models

As result of a CHAS pedagogy grant,

Dr. William Church, Professor of Chemistry and Neuroscience at Trinity College, received funding to develop a PowerPoint presentation called Role Models In The Natural Sciences. He designed this to allow professors in the sciences to easily be able to include references to female scientists and scientists of color when providing the historical background of a sub-discipline.

The link below will connect you to this project. Please feel free to utilize this program for your courses:
Scientists of Color: Exposure in the Classroom

This list is by no means complete or exhaustive, and Dr. Church plans to further augment the content of this database. We invite your contributions to the list, and hope to increase the number of younger role models it includes.

Please add role models in the sciences to the list by submitting this form:
