Homeschool Science Tip of the Month - Take time to learn about a famous scientist.

Gregor Mendel and his peas. Marie Curie and her discovery of new elements. Galen and a new way of looking at the human body. Rosalind Franklin and her ideas about DNA.

These men and woman and so many more have shaped what we know about science today. And there is value in teaching our students about their contributions.
