Unraveling the Mysteries: Sheldon Cooper and Other Great Scientists through the Ages

Krys Strand

Have you ever wondered who first measured the stars, why organisms have Latin names, who determined Avogadro’s number, why continents drift, or how neurons talk to each other? In this course we will explore the fascinating facts, findings, tales and riddles in science through some of its greatest minds and inventors. Students will investigate hypotheses, culture and language through the lives of several notable scientists over time and describe their contributions through one-act plays, scientific demonstrations and press bulletins.
